Our Idea Jar

A friend of mine asked me what our Idea Jar is all about, so I thought ... hey, why don't I just post it on my blog and all of you can read about it to?

We have an Idea Jar (used to be called a Bored Jar) for whenever Jaymi is bored and needs an idea of something she can do.  It used to be filled with only ideas of things she can do on her own (since she is an only child) but right now it has a few other ideas that involve other people as well.

Here is what's in it at the moment....please leave a comment and add more ideas if you wish!  We could always use more.

Do yoga.
Put on a puppet show.
Cloud watch.
Bowling (with a ball and toys that can be knocked over).
Build a tower.
Make a Cheerio necklace.
Play Wall Ball (this is a game we made up, where you play against the side of the house with a ball...different types of throwing - underhand, overhand...etc...combined with other tricky stuff - like touching the ground before the ball comes back to you, etc.).
