Avoid Those Dreaded words every mother hates to hear during summer break. “MOM I’m BORED!”  They’ll think twice after creating this fun “I’m Bored Jar”, because next time you hear those dreaded words you can simply say. “Do you want to take a chance?”  If they are feeling lucky they can draw a slip of paper.  You never know what they might get.  If they are lucky they might draw a “make cookies with mom” .  However, they might also draw “go clean your room” or Dust the living room.  They will definitely think twice.   Simply click on the photo to download the project sheet complete with instructions and pattern pieces.
