Things To Do When You're Bored On Animal Jam

Here I have compiled a list that I put together of things that you can do when you're bored on Animal Jam.

Send your buddy(s) a Jam-A-Gram! It's a nice way to break the ice if you're all alone on Animal Jam and your buddies are off doing other things. Obviously, some of your buddies might be doing something when you send them the Jam-A-Gram (like playing a game or talking to another friend) and so might not respond for a while (if at all), but I'm sure that seeing a postcard from their friend will put a big smile on their face! And if you want to be super nice, send a thoughful gift along with your Jam-A-Gram! Who knows, you might even receive a gift back!

Play some games! Animal Jam has games so Jammers like you can play them whenever you want! And there are so many different types of games that I'm sure you'll find a game you like/are good at in no time!
TIP: There is at least ONE game in each of the lands in Jamaa. (This doesn't count for the ocean lands, because Kani Cove and Crystal Sands don't have a game.)

Decorate your den! If I were your friend, I wouldn't want to visit a plain, empty den! And just because you don't have den rares doesn't mean you can't create an epic den! The best dens of all are dens that reflect the personality of the Jammer who owns them! Are you a sports fanatic? What about a food-lover? There are so many different ways to decorate your den, and you can even change the colors of most den items and add some music to further show off your style!

Customize Your Animals! A plain gray wolf with boring gray eyes and no accessories or patterns? Not very exciting! But when you let your imagination run wild, you'll be amazed at what you can create! Remember, looks aren't everything! You want to pick out a cool, fun name, too! You can even choose to walk your pet or not (if you choose to walk your pet, he/she will either show up on the ground or the air next to you, and likewise, if you choose to not walk your pet, he/she will NOT show up next to you). You can choose from all manner of customizations, including your eye color, primary color (your main color), and secondary color! Also, you can choose a cool pattern for your animal!

Read The Books In The Chamber of Knowledge! There are three really cool, interesting books in the Chamber of Knowledge! They are written for three different reading levels and are on three different subjects! There is a book on frogs that you might choose to read if you're still learning how to read (easy). There is another book on pandas that would be a good choice for you if you've pretty much grasped the concept of reading (medium). And of course, there is a book on butterflies for more advanced readers (hard). Any of these books would be a good choice for you, whether or not you are a beginner or a pro at reading! I read them all one day when I was bored and they were really interesting and I learned a lot!

Read The Fact Bubbles! If you hadn't already noticed, there are tons of little facts in circular bubbles around Jamaa. If you click on one, you'll get a cool fact! The symbol in the bubble "categorizes" the facts. For instance, the golden bubbles with the paw symbol are facts about big cats, so if you see those around Jamaa and click on one, you know that that bubble has a fact about a big cat. There are facts everywhere, so see if you can find and read them all! When you play the trivia game, "Temple of Trivia", where you answer trivia questions about animals and plants, the facts that you read will help you answer a lot of the questions in the game, so you'll have an advantage over Jammers who didn't take the time to stop and look at the fact bubbles!

Look At The Items In Shops! It's always helpful to take a quick look through the shops in Jamaa every once in a while. Maybe there was an item you wanted to buy but you didn't have enough coins to purchase it at that time and then it slipped your mind. The next thing you knew, that item was gone with the next update! Checking all of the stores in Jamaa for items that you think you'd wear/like in the future is really helpful. And buying clearance items is a smart idea, too, since clearance items mean that those items will be gone off of Animal Jam when the next update rolls around. Sometimes, Animal Jam brings clearance items back, but if they don't, that item will be rare in the future!

Explore! Clicking items in Jamaa is fun to do, and sometimes you discover things that you didn't know before! There are a couple of animals/plants/objects that will do something if you click/hover over them on Animal Jam, but I am not going to tell you what they are! You'll just have to explore and find out for yourselves!

I hope this mini guide gave you some fun things to do in Jamaa when you're bored! Animal Jam has so much to offer. You just have to stop for a minute, look around, explore, and most importantly: HAVE FUN!

    This was a great post, but (I'm not sure if you know) non members like me can't receive items from jam-a-grams. I received some gifts in jam-a-grams, but I can't open the gift. I can see what I got (one of the gifts is an elephant plushie)but I'm not allowed to have it, the membership message pops up when I click on the gift.

  8. after your membership wears off do you still get to keep all the stuff you bought that is for members only??

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yes you do. You get to keep all your member items but you can't wear them or use them until you renew your membership. And unfortunately they take out all of your member den items so you have to add those back to your den when you renew...

      Delete
    2. thats stupid but what about if you bought more animals?? do you still get to use them??

    2. Anonymous,
      I think they're showing they just jealous that you have membership. If it bugs you, block or ignore them, and play with a friend to forget about what happened.

      Delete
    3. Ya your tots right i am non member. If you were not bein mean to them they should shut their yap
      Btw, sometimes members are a little snobby and are treating non members unfairly. I am sure you were not tho.

      Delete
    4. i am a member and non members keep bugging me and saying mean things to me. i started a spirit army to stop any mean behavior around animal jam. any person can join with spirit armour! also i have a part of it that nm can join too!

      my username is horseygirlmd so pleeeeeaaaaase join the spirit army!

      Delete
    5. just send a jam a gram to me that says lets be buddies and i will know you want to join. i let anybody in, but i can still kick people out. see ya at camp jammers!!!

      MY USER IS horseygirlmd

      Delete
    6. That's sort of unfair, horseygirlmd. You're separating members and nonmembers for good reason, which is STILL unfair.

  12. This is a good page of ideas. But what do to when animal jam is on maintenance?

    1. That's a good question. Maybe I'll make a list of things to do when you're bored in real life.

  13. ummmmm i did this stuff and i was still bored :(

    1. Well I'm sorry to hear that. It's not like I can make Animal Jam not boring for you. If it's boring for you don't play it. This is a bonus. I made this list for people who HAVEN'T done it.

      Delete
  14. Um, I have another tip. You can also visit places to collect animals for your journey book. Like you posted.


    :D

    Happy Jamming!
