Are you starting to hear “we’re bored”; “there’s nothing to do”; “mom what should we do today?”  These are common phrases we hear now that the kids have been out of school for about a month. Since July is National Anti-Boredom month, and the kids will not be returning to classes for about another month, we thought it would be fun to give you a list of things you can do when you are bored!

Did you know July is National Anti-Boredom Month?  Check out these 4 things you can do when you are bored!

1.  Have a Backyard Campout

Get your sleeping bags, pillows and favorite stuffed animals and pitch a tent in the backyard. The kids will love to sleep outside under the stars. Invite some friends to the sleepover to tell ghost stories and have an “outdoor experience” with all the comforts of home only a few steps away!

2.  Have a Game Night

Bring out the classic games such as Monopoly, checkers and Bingo! These games are fun to play and a great way to spend time with the family. The kids will love to yell BINGO! Teaching the kids a new card game like Crazy 8’s or Hearts is always fun too! These card games are simple enough for them to play with their friends.

3.  Make a Scrapbook

Pick days to go on fun adventures. Bring a camera along when you take a hike on a new trail, walk to a park, or discover seashells and unique looking rocks at the beach. Take pictures of the scenery, and everyone collecting fun things from your adventures and create a scrapbook. By the end of the summer you will have a scrapbook full of wonderful family memories!

4.  Learn to Play a new Sport

Learn to play a new sport, or participate in an activity you have not tried before. Tennis is always fun to try, and you can usually find tennis courts close by. You might be able to find an indoor rock climbing wall and the kids can try to climb all the way to the top! These are not only things you can do when you are bored, but also will allow for some exercise as well!
