“Mom, I’m BORED!” Has anyone heard this at your house yet this summer? I was tipped off to this fun idea by one of my readers, Letti. I liked it so much we have implemented it in our home this summer.
If someone states that they are “bored” then they have to pull a slip of paper out of the Boredom Buster Jar. Then they must complete what the slip says. Most of them are small chores to help cure them of their boredom blues. But the slight twist is that I threw a few fun activities in there as a fun surprise.
When my kids have had to pull a chore, they haven’t complained about being bored for a while and quickly find something to entertain themselves with. No one at our house has yet to pull a fun surprise from the jar. I believe they may get desperate enough to feign boredom as their curiosity gets the better of them. Oh well, at least in the meantime we may get some of those chores done we can never quite get to.
