First, you find a clean jar. Then you decorate it! I just put “I am bored” on mine:
At the website, there are printable to-do’s including blank ones. Some are fun, some are chores. I printed them out, then glued them on cardstock (or whatever it’s called. It’s what scrapbookers/cardmakers use) & cut them out using squiggly-edged scissors.
I cut a piece of the cardstock out & glued it to the jar lid. Then I glued a length of ribbon around the band & voila!
I put sparkly happy face stickers on all the cards, even the chore ones. Since late May, we’ve only used 3 cards. My kids learned a long time ago not to tell me that they’re bored. My nephews, who are afraid of everything, don’t say they’re bored out loud because they’re afraid of getting a chore card, even though the 2 they pulled out were fun ones! The Baker pulled a fun one out, too 🙂 Well, fun for me but not for her (it was dancing & she’s too cool for that). We put the used ones in a dish next to the jar so we don’t pull the same card twice.
I hope these kids get brave & say they’re bored soon. I want to see which cards they pull out!!!
