How to make your own Christmas activity jar

What you’ll need: A glass jar, wooden lollipop sticks, black pen, stickers/decorations.

Method: Simply write your chosen activities on the lollipop sticks, decorate the jar and place them in. Then, when you’re stuck for something to do during the festive season, just pick a stick at random and see what you’ve selected!
