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.
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.
