One of the things parents hate hearing the most is “I’m bored”. When my kids come and say this to me, I feel like, on top of being the cleaner, the accountant, the teacher, the gardener and many other titles that I carry, I also have the wonderful title of Entertainer. But when I get rid of the fear I have of all of this, it can actually be quite fun.
Yesterday, I started posting a series of 100 ideas for parents to keep their kids busy and happy. Today, I am adding 20 more tips and I hope you will find them helpful.
All you need to do is go over them and schedule them into your weekends and holidays. I promise that by the end of the week, you will have so many ideas you will be asking for more weekends and holidays with your kids.
You are here today for the third part of the series, “Mom, I’m Bored!” with 100 fun things you can do with your kids to keep them busy, happy and having fun and even bonding with them as a family.
What can you do?
Play hide-and-seek at night when the lights are off. There is still so much light coming in through the windows that soon your kids will ask to put some things on the windows to make sure it is really dark. If you have very young kids, make sure someone is hiding with them and make a rule not to scare each other.
As you can see from the list, there are many things you can do with your kids to keep them busy and happy. If you decide to take a different idea each time and spread them over 52 weekends and 8 weeks of the school holidays, you may not even have to repeat any of them throughout the same year.
