Boredom Buster Jar

Stuck indoors? We’ve got lots of fun ideas to keep busy!

To avoid the “I’m bored!” blues during the lockdown, on a rainy day or any time that you’re stuck at home or indoors, download these printable boredom busters and pop them into a jar. Give it a shake and randomly pick one of the activities to keep entertained. You can also get creative and decorate the jar with stickers, ribbons and paint. In fact, that’s a fun boredom buster too!
