It is official. It is Christmas break at our house. And that means I’ll be hearing, “I’m bored!” before we’ve even finished breakfast.

So we’ve decided to resurrect the I’m Bored Jar we used this summer and fill it with Christmas activities. Such as:

  • Make cookies
  • Wrap presents
  • Make paper snowflakes
  • Color Christmas pictures
  • Make cards for friends and family
  • Put together a box of food for a local food pantry
  • Make ornaments
  • Sit by the fire and read Christmas stories
  • Drink some hot chocolate
  • Have a pajama party

The list could go on and on. These are things we want to each year anyway. But getting them in that jar means I won’t say, “maybe tomorrow.” I’ll say, Yes! Let’s do that right now!”
