A bored jar is a jar that is filled with activities to do when you are bored. The activities can be anything from simple things like reading or writing, to more complex things like puzzles or crafts. The point of a bored jar is to have a go-to list of things to do when you are feeling bored, so that you don’t waste time doing nothing.
DIY bath bombs
Who doesn’t love a nice, relaxing bath? But sometimes, even the most luxurious baths can feel a little…boring. That’s where bath bombs come in! These fizzy little balls of goodness can transform your ordinary bath into an amazing sensory experience.
And the best part is that you can easily make them at home with just a few simple ingredients. Here’s everything you need to know about making your own DIY bath bombs.
The first step is to gather your ingredients. You’ll need: 1 cup baking soda, 1/2 cup citric acid, 1/2 cup cornstarch, 1/4 cup epsom salt, 10 drops essential oil (optional), food coloring (optional), and a mold of some kind (a silicone muffin tin works great).
Next, mix together the dry ingredients in a bowl. If you’re using essential oils or food coloring, add them in now and mix until evenly distributed.
Once the dry ingredients are mixed together, it’s time to add the wet ingredient: water. Start by slowly spraying the mixture with water from a spray bottle until it starts to clump together when squeezed. Be careful not to add too much water or your bombs will fizzle instead of fizz!
Once your mixture is the right consistency, pack it tightly into your mold(s). You can use anything from an ice cube tray to a silicone muffin tin – just make sure whatever you use has cavities that are big enough for you to fit your hand into comfortably when they’re finished setting.
Catch lightning bugs
Lightning bugs, also commonly called fireflies, are popular summer insects known for their flashing lights. Many people enjoy catching lightning bugs in a jar to observe them up close. But did you know that there is more to these creatures than just their light show?
For starters, not all fireflies are created equal. In fact, there are over 2,000 different species of firefly found all over the world. While most of us associate lightning bugs with warm summer evenings, some species actually prefer to come out during the daytime!
Fireflies get their name from their unique ability to produce light. This light is created by a chemical reaction that takes place in the firefly’s abdomen. When the chemical reaction occurs, it produces oxygen which makes the light visible to us. Interestingly enough, not all fireflies use their light for communication purposes. Some species actually use their light as a way to startle predators or as a defense mechanism when they feel threatened. For instance, if a bird tries to eat a firefly, the flash of light might startle the bird and cause it to drop the insect!
So next time you see a lightning bug flickering in your backyard, take a moment to appreciate this amazing creature!
Have a car wash fundraiser for a club or charity
A car wash is a great fundraiser for a club or charity. It’s a fun and easy way to raise money, and it’s a great activity for the whole community.
Here are some tips for hosting a successful car wash fundraiser:
1. Choose a date and time that will work well for your community. A Saturday morning or afternoon is usually best.
2. Pick a location that has access to water and electricity, and make sure you have permission to use the space. A school parking lot or public park are both good options.
3. Promote your event in advance, through flyers, social media, and word of mouth. The more people you can get involved, the more successful your fundraiser will be.
4. Collect donations of car-washing supplies from local businesses or individuals (soap, sponges, buckets, etc.). This will help save on costs.
5. Set up a suggested donation amount (for example, $5 per car), and have volunteers collect the money as cars come through the wash station
Make a cute tote bag out of a recycled tank top or jeans
When you’re bored, there’s nothing worse than feeling like you have nothing to do. But don’t worry, we’ve all been there. The good news is that there are plenty of ways to beat boredom and make the most out of your free time.
One great way to fight boredom is by getting creative and making something new. If you’re looking for a fun project to take on, why not try making a cute tote bag out of a recycled tank top or pair of jeans? With just a few simple supplies and some basic sewing skills, you can create a stylish and unique bag that is sure to come in handy for everyday use.
To get started, gather up an old tank top or pair of jeans that you no longer wear, along with some scissors, thread, and a sewing needle. Then cut off the bottom hem of the garment so that you have one long piece of fabric to work with. Next, fold the fabric in half lengthwise and sew along the side seam to create a tube-like shape.
Once your bag is sewn shut at the side seam, turn it right side out so that the seams are now on the inside. Then use a ruler or measuring tape to mark where you will need to make two cuts for handles. The handles should be about 10-12 inches long each so that they are sturdy enough to hold everything you need inside your new bag. Once your handles are cut out, sew them on to either side of your bag using a strong stitch such as a zigzag stitch or backstitch.
Now it’s time to decorate! Use fabric paint or markers
Fly paper airplanes
Fly paper airplanes is a great way to pass the time and have some fun. All you need is a sheet of paper and something to fly it with (like a straw or your finger). Just fold the paper into an airplane shape and then see how far you can make it fly. You can even have competitions with your friends to see who can make their airplane fly the farthest.
Not only is fly paper airplanes a fun activity, but it’s also a great way to learn about aerodynamics. As you experiment with different designs, you’ll start to understand how air resistance affects flight and what factors affect how far an airplane will travel. So why not give it a try today? Who knows, you might just end up having a lot of fun while learning something new in the process!
Sketch your pet
tips on how to Sketch your pet:
First, choose a good photo of your pet that you can reference as you draw. If you don’t have a photo, take some time to observe your pet and make some mental notes about their unique features. Next, sketch out a basic outline of your pet using light pencil strokes. Be sure to get the proportions accurate before moving on to the details.
Now begin fleshing out the drawing with more detailed lines. Add in the fur, whiskers, eyes, nose, and mouth. Use small strokes to add texture and realism to the fur. Finally, erase any unwanted pencil lines and add any final touches like shading or highlights.
Go through your closet and make new outfits
Consider your closet as a blank canvas. Every piece of clothing is a brushstroke that can be used to create a masterpiece of an outfit. The possibilities are endless!
There are many ways to breathe new life into your wardrobe. One way is to mix and match items that you wouldn’t typically pair together. Be bold and experiment with different colors, patterns, and textures. You might be surprised at how well certain items go together.
Another way to spruce up your closet is by accessorizing. A great accessory can take an ordinary outfit and make it extraordinary. Experiment with different jewelry, scarves, belts, and hats to find the perfect finishing touches for your look.
If you’re feeling really adventurous, you can even create entirely new outfits from scratch by piecing together different articles of clothing. This is a great way to get use out of those one-off pieces that you’ve been holding on to but never knew what to do with. And who knows? You might just end up inventing the next big fashion trend in the process!
