2.4 based on 8 ratings

What You Need:

  • Paper and pen (or computer)
  • Stapler
  • Decorating materials your child might like (for example: stickers, markers, crayons, family pictures, etc.)

What You Do:

  1. Ask your child to make a list of his/her favorite activities. Younger children can dictate their ideas to parents. Activity categories can include: Outside Activities, Inside Activities, Activities with Friends and Activities Alone.
  2. Staple the lists into a book or type and print it out on the computer. Be sure to make a title page!
  3. Have your child decorate the book however she likes.
  4. Refer to this book whenever the "I’m Bored" statement makes an appearance! You can continue to add to the book as you and your child find more and more ways to keep that boredom at bay!

This book is something your child can refer to on her own, whenever she feels like it, and hopefully she will get in the habit of trying to find fun things to do before she declares that she's bored!
