Make a Bored Jar




We all know that time when you don't have anything to do and your extremely bored. Here's the solution to that: a Bored Jar. They are very easy to make and you probably already have all the things you need laying around the house.

What you will need:

A jar
*Don't use a mason jar because those are too small. The jar I used was bought at Home Goods and full of candy


A marker or pencil though I suggest a marker


Glue or tape

Step 1: Make the Label

So first you need to take your scissors and your sheet of paper. With them you're going cut out a smallish rectangle or whatever you want. Then you are going to take your marker and write what you want your jar to be labeled as. Once it is written take your tape (or glue) and stick the label on the jar. If you want you may skip this step entirely.

Step 2: Make the Jars Contents

So once you're done you are going to take the rest of your paper and cut it into little squares about 2" by 2". Next you're going to take your marker and little squares and write things you like to do and things not so much like play with your dog or clean your room. When you finish you will take the squares and fold them in half diagonally.

Step 3: Fill the Jar!

Now you get to stuff all those little papers into your jar! On another square I suggest you right "Make more squares" because it's lots of fun to fish around for something to do when your jar is full!
