I made this simple container this week. it is our “Boredom Buster Can.”
I filled it with lots of creative ideas. When the kids are finished with their schoolwork or are just looking for something to do, they can go to the Boredom Buster Can.
Examples of boredom busters:
Make a newspaper
Write a letter to a friend (not an email!)
Make playdough and play bakery
Make an obstacle course
Make a play
Create a comic strip
Sketch nature/research a new finding
Research a foreign country you would like to learn about
Practice musical instruments
Practice Rosetta Stone
Read a new book
The possibilities are endless. I will continue to add more as needed.
What a simple, easy idea to eliminate the “I’m Bored!” syndrome!
