I think my family should do this the first day of summer. We usually do a "what do you want to do" list, but this seems fun too. 150 Things, Bored Kids Ideas, Summer Fun Kids Ideas, Fun Things, Fun Sticks, 150 Fun, Bored Ideas For Kids, Things To Do, Bored Jars
Great starting points for conversations with children. Perhaps children will share more with the right question.
The "Mom, I'm Bored" Jar...Some of the activities are fun, some of them are not, so before your kids decide to have you entertain them, they really need to decide if its worth it or not! They might get “Make cookies with Mom”, or they might get “Pull weeds.” They could get “Play in the sprinklers”, or they could get “Do a chore of Mom’s choice!”
