7.  Summer I’m bored jar

When you hear the lovely words ” I’m bored!” this summer, show your kids the I’m bored jar(s)! I made ours last summer and am bringing them out again. My rule is once they have taken out a stick they can’t put it back for another one.  Note to self: have all supplies ready ahead of time! 🙂
