Mom... I'm Bored....

over at Bottles, Barbies and Boys she is hosting Summer tips and tricks Tuesday to keep the children busy and the adults sane. To join in the fun, post in your blog, then drop her an e-mail. She will link to you.

My tip this week is the....

Mom, I'm bored chart (there are 2 different charts, I printed both) which I found a few weeks back at Chart Jungle

the magic part of it is that B heads straight to the fridge to look at the list and decide what to do. If I can keep this up for even 2 weeks I'll be thrilled beyond words.

So... you don't want to click on the link? this is sample of what is on the list...

read a book

write a funny story

make a card for someone

go on a nature hunt

make a hat

sort through photographs (this could work for you too :))

That's a really cool idea! Knowing my kids they would do them all in less than an hour. I'll have to make mine challenging! Fun fun fun!

Thanks for participating!

What a great idea, if only my son could read or write yet!

BUT I will be keeping this for when that time comes. Thanks~

Oh I always have an answer for boredom--math drills, mopping the kitchen floor, etc. (evil grin)

Happy POW!
