Those two words, especially when drawn out in a whining groan, can drive any parent insane after only one use. When it’s repeated the plummet to insanity happens even faster. Kids can get bored easily, even more so now with all the constant media stimulation that leads to shortened attention spans. However, boredom is not inherently bad. It is an opportunity for kids to learn to think creatively, use their imaginations, and take initiative in coming up with something to do. For parents, the challenge is to encourage these skills in kids rather than keep their schedules so busy that they never have time to stop and think for themselves.
If your kids are feeling the summer doldrums as we approach the middle of their break from school, the Morning Thing is here to help. We found a list of multiple options that you can use both to provide your kids with fun, engaging activities or to help them come up with options themselves. You can find the whole list HERE.
The great thing about this list is that it not only helps kids to be creative and imaginative, every item on there is also guaranteed to make a memory for your family. So don’t let boredom get the best of you and your family this summer. Get out there and make some memories!
