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!

Summer time is actually one of the precious times for me. During summer, my family and I usually do some activities that make us feel more bonded. I have to say that those times were the most treasured moment for me. One of the activities that we do is we usually look for some places where we can have our vacation. Last summer, we had to go to a beach because my mom wants to see some water and sand. I have to say that it was one of the best vacations ever. We are now kind of planning where to have our next summer vacation. I hope it will be so much better than last time.
