Fun Boredom Busters for Kids this Summer

                                

Summer Boredom Busters



Summertime is a great time for excitement for kids for those first few weeks when school is out. But it seems like only a couple of weeks before the loss of routine makes them say, “Mom, I’m bored!”

To detour this, I always sit down with my kids at the beginning of summer with a special treat and brainstorm with them things they would like to do with others AND the things they could do by themselves if they get bored. Some of my favs:



  • Paint rainbows on toast with food coloring then eat it!
  • Use giant size t-shirts, stuff pillows in them and be suma wrestlers!
  • Make a doll house out of a shoe box
  • Mix up bubble paints with water and paints, then blow bubbles and lay paper over it to catch the imprint
  • Catch bugs
  • Dig for treasure 
  • Make duc-tape bracelets
  • Marble paint-tape a piece of paper inside a shirt box lid-  squirting washable paints in a shoe box then roll marbles around-lift off paper when finished!
  • Have a bubble party and invite friends over to bring their bubbles and wands
  • Make ice cream cups by layering crushed cookies and candies with ice cream. Push a wooden stick in and freeze.
  • Go on the Oregon Trail Adventure
  • Play Post Office
  • Bird Watch and draw and color in a notebook
  • Host a book club and do activities
  • Make Teddy Bear Jello Cups
  • Let your child make a collage of things they like for their bedroom with poster board and magazines
  • see how many things you can make out of plastic recyle-ables


For my younger one who can’t read or write yet, I have them draw a small picture next to the words, so if I’m busy and can’t read the list with them, they can understand the list by themselves. For example, they might draw a tent next to the one that reads: Make Army Tent with Brother.

I post the list on the refrigerator. I find my little ones zooming in the room to look at the list then zooming off again on an adventure. Once the list is exhausted, we make another one. I also look for outdoor projects they can work on.  If this doesn’t work, I always use the, “ace up my sleeve,” I have some chores for you to do.” They vanish!
