25 Boredom Busting Ideas for Christmas Break

Last summer I shared 281 boredom busting ideas for the summer. It turned into quite the popular post!  Now it’s time for 25 MORE boredom busting ideas just in time for Christmas Break.

My list last summer didn’t include anything exciting like “take a trip to the zoo” or “schedule your visit to the theme park.” Instead, it was 281 ideas for how to respond when your child says “I’m bored.”

The ideas ranged from “go clean your room” to “why not write a letter to your grandmother” and almost every single one of them avoided the use of computers, televisions, or digital devices.

Most of them avoided heavy crafting skills, intense parental involvement, or trips to the store for supplies.

There were a lot of  ideas that work year-round (like “take out the trash” please) but many of them were specific to summer. “Go run through the water sprinklers” isn’t such a good idea during the winter months.
