The "I'm Bored" List

by sarahmfry, June 10, 2020

The summer has just started, but on the heels of an 11-week quarantine, it feels like the summer has been going awhile.  The boys love playing together.  Except when they don't.  Then there inevitably ends up being weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth.  

We do have screen time around here, but it is a double-edged sword.  It keeps everyone happy while I clean out a closet, but in the meantime they forget where they put their brains and imaginations!!

I've used a list like this for years.  It has changed as the kids change.  Obviously, ours is heavy on the boy stuff.  But you can make one with baby dolls and unicorns too!

When the kids can't think of anything to do, just whip out this handy-dandy list and let them go for it!  Make a list that fits your family.  Include mostly things they can do with little help from you, and a few things that require your help.
