Make It! I’m Not Bored Anymore Art Jar

My daughter received a Land of Nod ”Im Not Bored Anymore Art Jar’ from a sweet friend last Christmas that she uses ALL THE TIME.  You can see it here.  With several of her friends’ birthdays around the corner I thought we would make our own version.


We made a trip to Micheals and gathered a variety of ‘artsy’ things we thought looked like fun.  Yards of ribbon, pink feathers, pom-poms, felt stickers, they all seemed to scream “create with me!”

It is also a great time to stock up on staples like crayons and glue, they are considerably cheaper this time of year. :)

We placed them in this adorable ‘paint can’ gift package, that I also found at Micheals.

We finished it off with some ribbon, a gift tag and a personalized label made from scrapbook paper taped inside (using double-sided tape).  Not only is this gift fun but it is very easy to personalize according to the child’s interests.  And it is something the birthday girl (or boy) can add to as they use up the supplies.  Craft stores always have discounted sections and sales, that you can snag bargains at.
