Things To Do When You Are Bored

Not that we are ever bored, because as parents it's nearly impossible to be bored.  This list was created by my kids and can be used by your own kids if you so desire.  I thought it would be fun to share.

  1. write letters to yourself
  2. Send thank you notes to people you love
  3. Climb the sidewalk *
  4. Post funny missing dog picture
  5. turn your favorite book into a comic
  6. decorate a shoe box like you (use cutouts and drawings)
  7. Follow an ant
  8. Make a time capsule
  9. Build a birdhouse **
  10. Buy property on Mars +
  11. Neighborhood clean up
  12. Sell Pet Rocks
Yes, they actually set up a pet rock stand
And yes, they sold some.  8 for $2!  How about that!?


*  Climbing the sidewalk:  On your hands and knees and pretending you are using a rope to climb up!  Bonus...jump off the curb and pretend it is a cliff.
** I know you can do this with milk cartons
+  Make a certificate claiming your land.  Be as creative as you want.

What do you do when you get bored?

Love it! I remember being a little kid and learning very quickly to never say the word bored around my mom. I would quickly be assigned a chore to do. :)
Thanks for the awesome giveaway. I was so excited to find out I was the winner!
