School is almost out! My kids and I are both super excited for a long school break but I know it won’t take long for my kids to start telling me, “I’m bored.”
I have come up with a long list of responses you can give every time your kids complain of boredom. Hopefully these ideas will be enough to keep them busy during their downtime and spark new ideas for them to try! (affiliates included)
Also, there are some super fun online camps we really like on ConnectedCamps.com. Our favorite is Mastering Minecraft!
Still bored? Check out these Documentaries for Kids and Podcasts for Kids.

When my boys were small they used to paint the fence. All they need is a bucket of water and some paint brushes.

I love these ideas. As a grandma, I’m particularly fond of item number 51. Love the grandbabies!

I did this for several years . Eventually, I said since nothing on my list was what they wanted to do, we all would clean drawers and closets. Somehow after that, my sons were never bored or lacked something to do. That was more than 40 years ago.

I would suggest Walk The Dog be put first on the list.. That would wake them up fully spark to some of the others,
