We have been using an I’m Bored Jar for the last two years now and I wouldn’t be without one. With the summer holidays coming now is the perfect time to put together yours.
Make a Bored Jar
You can really use any jar or container that you have in the house. I used a kilner jar that we had in the kitchen and cut out a some paper to make a label and also a tag to make it all pretty!
