Our printable Jar of Joy is the perfect solution to bored or squabbling children! This digital product contains a jar label and 40 activities in 5 fun categories, to print at home.
The activities consist of 8 Lego challenges, 8 STEM missions, 8 conversation starters, 8 movement tasks and 8 outdoor quests!
Using the Jar of Joy couldn’t be easier. Simply print the activities, attach the label to a clean jar, snip and fold the activities and pop them in. Any time your child is bored, pass them the jar!
Your children can enjoy the activities lucky dip style, or use the colour coding to pick an activity of a certain type. The activities are suitable for children aged 5+ with adult support as appropriate. For children aged 7-11 these activities should be mostly independent.
The Jar of Joy is designed to be very open-ended, allowing children to complete the challenges at their own level. This resource will encourage children to think, move, create and imagine. If you have multiple children, they can work individually to stimulate independence, or work together as a team – both of which are vital life skills.
