Summer Fun Idea Jar with Printables

When my kid exclaimed they were bored on the first day of summer break I knew I had to do something.   I saw an idea for a boredom buster jar here -

I used this idea to come up with the Summer Fun Jar.  Each day my kids will pick out a new fun idea to do that will hopefully keep them from getting bored.  I created these cards that you can print off here -

Summer Fun Idea Jar

To create this jar...

  • print the project

  • cut out the cards

  • glue the "Summer Fun Idea Jar" onto the jar

  • Then put the cards in the jar and start the ideas!  You can change the activities to fit your family.  I just came up with some that would suit us best.

I would love to hear how you beat summer boredom!



  1. What a fun idea! Hope you and your kiddos have a great summer of fun!

  2. Great idea! If only my 3-year old and 18 month old would get bored! They never.stop.moving!

  3. I have a 13 month and she keeps me on my toes. I have a great chore list now as well that helps keep the boredom blues away. :) I hope you have a wonderful holiday weekend.
