Kids Bored Already? Try This Clever Idea to Stop Summer Boredom! by Ann Marie Patitucci

Kids Bored Already? Try This Clever Idea to Stop Summer Boredom!

Are your kids already complaining that they’re bored, when summer has only just begun? How about hanging a reminder of some things they can do to keep them busy? At our house we have two signs, one with the word BORED and one with the word PLAYTIME. The kids helped to create them. Each letter stands for an activity they can do when they’re bored. Whenever they complain, I just point to the signs. It works like a charm!

  • Board games 
  • Outside play 
  • Read 
  • Exercise 
  • Dance

What fun does playtime hold?

  • Photography 
  • Lemonade stand 
  • Art 
  • Yoyo 
  • Throwing ball around 
  • Imagine 
  • Music 
  • Experiments

What will your kids come up with? B for bubbles? M for magic show?
