Boredom is your worst enemy

About a year ago my oldest son was involved with Kids on the Move, a great early intervention program. Through them I met my dear friend Marsha Lima, a child behavior specialist. Though she has continued to teach us several things, "Boredom is your worst enemy" was one that has stuck with me the most. I have since started compiling what I call BOREDOM BUSTERS; a long list of activities/project/ideas to keep your kids entertained.
The whole idea is to have projects or ideas readily available for when boredom hits at your house. Most of the activities are super simple - so I try to assemble all of the materials needed, put them in a bag or envelope with the instructions, and stash them all in a box. That way, I have several go to activities/projects/ideas just waiting for a rainy day...
I created this blog for parents everywhere to get ideas, inspiration, and help with busting their kids boredom!
