As I’ve been cleaning up files on my computer I came across a refrigerator reminder about what to do when you are bored.

My mother used to tell us when we came to her saying, I’m bored: Go sweep the porch.

It was amazing how quickly we found something much more fun to do.

That was a kick to the old imagination.

Here’s a handout to download that might help any bored children in your house.


Been creative?

Out to play?

Read a book?

Exercised for 20 minutes?

Done something helpful?

P.S. You might want to take my Planning for Summer Fun training, too.
