Boredom Buster #1

Can someone please explain to me how in the world a three year old can be bored? Seriously, he has toys, a backyard, crayons, Play Doh, a swing set, LEGOs…but he still manages to be right up under me climbing on me, falling on me and poking me in the face. I figured out pretty quickly that it would be a looong summer if I didn’t find some things to occupy his time and hands. Don’t get me wrong. It’s not that I don’t want to be around my little boy. I just want him to have fun without maiming me or destroying the house! So I decided to try to find some easy, cheap activities that we could make at home. I’ve taken mental note of several we’re going to try over the summer, so here’s the first one we’ve accomplished. *Insert resounding trumpet – “Ba-da-da-daaa!” here*

Shape Lacing

Find a cardboard box or gift box.

Cut into fun shapes.

Punch holes.

Find shoelaces or strings of yarn.

Have fun!
