Just lately the weather has been so flipin’ miserable and I sometimes feel like I have run out of ideas for things to do…..so I’ve ended up flicking the telly on because the kids are driving one another crazy and they are BORED!
I thought it would be cool, with your help, to try to get together a list of ’50 boredom busters’ so we all have a list to refer to in case of a boredom emergency? Cool? Can you help?
The only rule is that you have to use common household objects and it’s gotta be something you can do for free! If anyone has any really easy recipes that would be ace too!
Here are a few ideas to get started
1) Make a den! Grab some cushions, a table, sheets and make an indoor den. Perfect for a rainy day and our no.1 boredom buster
2) Make a mudpie. Grab some spoons, water and some plastic pots or muffin trays and head outside to make some muddy pies.
3) Do the washing. Last summer I made a child-sized washing line with some string and a couple of sticks stuck in the ground. My kids had heaps of fun ‘washing’ clothes and pegging them on the line.
4) Make playdough!
5) Ice cube painting – it’s the perfect summer activity!
