This week’s Works for Me Wednesday focuses on the summer months — the time of year when we’re most likely to hear the words, “Mom, I’m bored!” come out of our children’s mouths. I am excited about sharing our ideas but even MORE excited about reading others’ ideas. So let’s get right to it!
I’ll start off with an over-arching idea: Summer door dots. We did this last year and it was a hit. A great way to get the kids to list what they’d like to do and see, and a fun, visual & colorful way to make those things happen!
Other fun boredom busters we’ve cranked up and/or created around here:
- Snail mail adventuring….Flat Stanley style
- Crayon wax art (needs adult supervision)
- Driveway alphabet game
- Construct a cardboard factory (and more)
- Play Paper Cup Atari
- Nostalgia fans: Host summer movies at home
