    For me it will usually be some kind of sewing. I like the Starburst but my grandchildren might like the Tic Tac Toe. Thanks for the ideas.

    I really love the Pick a Stick Boredom Jar idea as a rainy day craft! How fun and relieving is it to know that the solution to your boredom is just sitting in jar. All you have to do is pick a stick! A simple and effective way to be proactive and crafty whenever you need it. I will definitely be using this idea with my niece and nephew.
