One of my all time most popular blog posts is a post from a few years ago where I told you all about our Bored Jar and shared 80 ideas with you in case you wanted to make your own version.
Our Bored Jar has seen us through rainy days, school holidays and after school blues and we still have it now. Sadly though, my two have pretty much grown out of a lot of the ideas I shared back then.
At aged 10 and 12, they’re don’t enjoy crafting as much these days and their interests are very different so our bored jar of old has needed a bit of a re-vamp recently. I decided to make a Bored Jar for each of the kids so I could tailor the activities a bit although they often play together and do activities from each others jars.
Today I’m going to share with you the ideas that we have in Miss Frugal’s Bored Jar and you can click on the photo below to get a free printable version if you want to use the ideas for own tween girl bored jar (you can use it for a boy too but you might like to take some of the ideas as most boys may not want to paint their nails ;-))….
I printed out four copies on different coloured paper so I had a few of each option. Once I had them printed, I cut them out and folded them on half once. For the jar itself, I used a small Kilner jar that I picked up from Morrisons for about £1.60 and as you can see, from the photo below, the four sheets was just enough to fill the jar.
She’s over the moon with her updated bored jar and I know it’s going to be well used next week!
