Boredom Busters for Kids

We all know that kids can get bored easily. When they’re not occupied with school work, their own projects, or playing outside, it’s a good idea to have some boredom buster activities on hand to keep them entertained!

I remember when I was young and would get bored and have nothing to do . . . my parents would tell me only “boring people get bored.” I’m sure you’ve heard this before from your own parents, or perhaps you’ve said this to your kids.

And to a certain extent it’s true.

But I do notice that it’s a LOT easier to relieve boredom when you have a driver’s license and money. Then you can just head to the craft store and grab something when you need an activity! I do give kids credit . . . they don’t have that luxury.

So, in order to help them out a bit – AND help you parents – I’ve put together a list of boredom busters that kids are going to love. A lot of them use household materials and/or things you might already have in your craft stash, hopefully eliminating the need to buy supplies.
