The kids are going to be out of school soon and while they’re anticipating it with excitement right now, within a few days of Summer break you will probably hear those 2 little words you are dreading, “I’m Bored!” I always try to have activities planned a few days out of the week but there are also days where I just need to stay at home and get things done. Those are the days when the kids would get restless and bored. Don’t get me wrong I don’t actually think there’s anything wrong with being a little bored and having some down time, but apparently my kids do. That’s why I made this BORED Printable.
You don’t even have to say anything, just direct them to the print. If they can’t read yet you can make little pictures to place beside each activity. Maybe they could make the pictures as one of their activities. During Summer I actually continue to have the kids read 30 minutes each day. We usually read right after lunch, which makes it at least 1/2 hour of pure quiet bliss.
Since we spend a lot of time in the kitchen, that’s the perfect spot for our printable. Frame it, stick it on your fridge, tape it to the door – whatever gets your kid’s attention.
The next time my kids say, I’m Bored, I’m pointing to the print and asking them if they’ve done everything. Chances are they haven’t, so it will at least buy me a little more time until the next activity. What do you think? Could you use this in your home? I’m happy to share this printable with you. Hope it helps!
