I finished my final high school exams a couple of weeks ago and the second I stepped out of the classroom I found out I have no plans for the summer. It made sense that I would clean my room and throw away all the papers I won’t need in college, but that would only be a one-day  activity, so I decided to make a »bored jar« – a jar filled with ideas you can use when you’re extremely bored.


If you want one, here’s what you’ll need:

1.  a mason jar


2. color pens and tape


3. pieces of paper


This is great even if you’re not a DIY professional because it’s really simple!

All you have to do is decorate your jar and fill it with ideas, for example:

Clean your room,

go through your closet,

make something (you can find a lot of ideas on Pinterest),

watch an old movie,

go to the beach,

learn a new language.


Every time you’re bored, just pick a random paper and do what it says. I hope you have a wonderful, bored-free summer with this jar!

    How cute and simple! This would be perfect for nannies and babysitters too for ideas on what to do with the kids!
