There is nothing more annoying than your kids whining about being bored! My kids have learned not to tell me that or they will be put to work! They have learned to occupy themselves pretty well over the years. If you teach your kids at home, they are probably used to a little boredom from time to time, like mine are.
However, most kids these days live very structured lives. If your schedule suddenly becomes less full (like when the corona virus cancels everything in the country) it may take them some time to get used to this slower pace.
I’m Bored Bingo can be used over Spring Break or Summer vacation. If you have your kids home right now during the virus outbreak, this is a good way to keep kids busy while also learning!
We all want to limit screen time in our kids lives because we know the detriment of too much of it. These are screen-free activities that kids love! Download this printable list of things to do when bored for your kids today!
