Ideas for Using your Boredom Busters for Families
Okay now that you have your list of fun things to do when you are bored, what should you do with it? Here are a few ideas:
- Print and check one off of the list every day.
- Print then cut into pieces. Put them in a jar and pull one out every day to do. Or just have them pull one out every time they say they are bored.
- Have your kids take turns each day being the person who gets to pick the family activity.
- Print off the entire list and make a schedule to get all of the activities done in a certain amount of time.
- Use this list to brainstorm even more ideas and let your family make a personalized version that you can use.
So, print this list of family boredom busters to keep your entire family sane during this time. I say anything little thing that will help is well worth it.
If you are in a rut and stuck finding fun things to do when you are bored, use this list to kick start some ideas for your family. You will be having fun before you know it and then you can stop hearing “I’m bored” every few minutes.
