Here are Three Simple Ways to Keep Your Kids From Getting Bored This Summer

Before you let them spend the summer on their tablets or TV, here are a few ideas to beat your kids’ summer boredom. Just a few ideas that might help.

  • Boredom jar- Fill a jar with slips of paper with an activity written on each one. You can come up with ideas that your kids will be into, like “build a fort” and “dance party.” But you can also stick chores into the jar, so they never know if what they grab will be fun or a task.
  • Pick from the “summer bucket list”- The first step for the family is to come up with a list of things they want to do before summer ends. But a boring paper list is no fun, so next it’s time to get creative with the ideas. You can write them on popsicle sticks and stick them in a bucket, or write them on clothespins and clip them on and off.
  • Nature photo scavenger hunt- Another idea to keep boredom at bay is to give the kids a list of 10 ot 15 ideas to go out and search for in a backyard nature hunt. Think butterfly, spiderweb, bug, rocks, and Y-shaped stick. It’ll get the kids outside and away from a screen for a little while and that’s what it’s all about.
