“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 !
