Gather together ideas for activities in a jar. They can be geared to kids during the summer or activities for families to do together or even simple ideas for date night or one on one time with a child. This is also a great way to get chores done. ShabbyBeachNest even has a tutorial and printables or her “I’m Bored” Jar here.
Pick activities that remind you of your childhood or a family story and you have a great way to share story or memory in the process.
If this idea inspires you, let me know. I’d love to share your project here too.

I actually used this job jar when my daughter was big enough to do the house chores. Thursday night at dinner, we made the list and cut them up into strips and placed them in a jar. Each of us drew a job until all jobs were done. She stopped complaining about cleaning house and I got the work done.
That sounds like a great way to work together on chores. I sometimes do something similar to get myself to do things I don’t want to do.
