The "Mommy I'm Bored" List of Responses

No matter how many things a child may have to occupy their time, chances are good that she/he will say this on at lease one occasion during their childhood:


"Mommy, I'm bored."

Being bored isn't a bad thing.  Being bored is something I hope to encounter again one day, since it is incredibly rare in the world of parenting.  Being bored is my goal. Until then, I have a few ideas for my children in the event they truly forget the menu of options at their disposal.  




Quick List of Seven Responses

One

"Go take something apart and put it back together."

(Make sure it's a toy or object that doesn't need to be put back the same way.  This is a learning experience.  Don't use your best expresso machine.)

Two


Read a book or Write a book

(You can find blank journals at the Dollar Tree)








Three


Bubbles and Bubble Wands








Four


Picnic and Play Time at the Park

Five


Art Time - Painting!

  Washable finger paints smell great and clean up well.
*Suggest a collage of hands and feet.
*Finger print animal creations
*Stamp Printing
*Run a roll of brown packing paper across a fence or on the grass. 
*Hold the paper in place using masking tape, ribbons, or clothes pins for the fence & large rocks to hold down paper on the grass.
*Use large paint brushes or just hands and feet to create a mural






Six


Art Time - Crayons!

Provide a variety of paper textures and empty a box of crayons onto a large plate. For additional fun add glue and other collage materials such as stickers, buttons, beads, and foam shapes. Just leave it out on the table and let the kids decide what to do.
(Developmental Age caution: Small parts not for younger children due to risk of swallowing/choking.)









Seven


Play in the rain, mud, dirt, and sand
Make time for outdoor play!





My wish for you is that you may one day find yourself bored and return to tell us about it. 

 Hope you have a great week!


Kindest Regards,
~ Mary
