It's been awhile since I've blogged. We've been busy enjoying the summer holidays and the beautiful weather we've been having. But lately, I've been hearing a lot of the same thing from my daughter. And I'm pretty sure every mom in the world over hears this too at some point. Do you know what I'm talking about?
"Mom, I'm Bored."
This is the most confusing thing to me. My kids have everything they could ever want to keep them entertained for years but they still came in telling me there bored.
So, In an attempt to beat the boredom and stop the nagging and fussing I decided to make a "I'm bored" jar.
It's so easy. All you need is a jar and some paper and I didn't have to try think of all the ideas myself. I found this link on another blog on pinterest and she has some very good ideas. With some of these and some of my own thrown in, I'm sure that we'll never have a problem again with being bored.
Some are chores and some are things that they have to do with a parent.
The rule is that you get to pick one activity. If you don't like it, you get to swap it for something else. Whatever you get the second time, is what you get.
Do you have any ideas to add to the list?
Be sure and let me know in the comments section so i can add them to my jar.
Thanks for stopping by.
