“Muuum, I’m bored”


Holey Moley I would love to be able to say I was bored. Imagine (remember ūü§™) the freedom of endless summer days, nothing scheduled in, no time restraints? These days both Mum and Dad are likely working, maybe¬† at home and supervising at the same time, so the kids can kind of lose themselves into whatever activity they want to, yet still “I’m bored” raises every now and then.¬†


Hot off the press and much needed at our home already Рkids have had a few days of zombie pyjama rest days, I am working and trying to concentrate without distractions every 15 minutes. I put together this  list of boredom busters with low price tags, and low supervision requirements, for easy at-home entertainment.




    • Create an obstacle course


    • Go for a run – see if you can improve your time during the holidays?


    • Make a movie


    • Read a book


    • Ride a bike


    • Create a scavenger hunt


    • Dance to music – invent your own routine


    • Lego


    • Practice handstands and cartwheels, or your favourite sport


    • Set up a cafe at home and serve a meal


    • Write a story/letter/journal entry


    • Do some gardening


    • Play cards or board games


    • Photo a day challenge


    • Cook muffins or something else tasty


    • Create music – Ipad Garage Band is great for this


    • Unscrew unused (and UNPLUGGED) appliances and see what they are made from


    • Do something thoughtful and kind for someone


    That should keep them occupied for a while !
