Earlier in the week I wrote about our Bored Jar over at Mum’s Business. Basically grab a jar and fill it with strips of paper with activity ideas to keep the kids amused. In writing that post I had lots more ideas for fun activities to write on the papers so here’s some more:
- make up a song, dance or story
- listen to a CD
- walk to the park
- jump on the trampoline or ride a bike
- play hide and seek
- phone a friend for a chat
- build a cubby house
- make an obstacle course
- have a water fight
- dress up
- pretend to be a hairdresser
- decorate cupcakes
- put on a show
- make a bracelet
What kinds of things do you have your kids do when they complain of being bored? Tell me with your Top 3 ideas…

Hi lovely Tonya! How are you? I’m pretty lucky that my kids haven’t said that to me ‘yet’. All I seem to have heard these last holidays is “she hit me”, “he hit me”, “she won’t give it back” etc etc. Can you make up a jar of something to deal with that? LOL Fantastic idea. I’m featuring it at tomorrow’s party. Thanks for linking up. I really appreciate it.
Thank you, Anne! I’ll pop over later on to link up for this week
Thank you for sharing this list! We’re making a bored jar now & your list was very helpful. 🙂
Happy to help, Kelly!
