Anyone with children of a certain age will probably (almost definitely)have heard them utter the words ‘Mum, I’m bored’ at some point!
It drives me mad, especially when there’s so much for children to do these days so the words are banned in my house although I can always tell when they’re bored because of the way they wander from room to room picking things up and putting them straight back down again. 😉
So as well as our bored jar (which is amazing for giving the kids ideas to keep themselves occupied) we also have a little posted on the side of the fridge:
The poster works really well for my two as they have to work their way down the list if ever they’re bored. It’s also great for me if I can see that they’re at a loss for something to do as I can just give them ideas based on it.
You’re more than welcome to print it out (it’s A4 sized) and use it yourself to stick it on your fridge door – I guarantee it will
probably stop the dreaded words being spoken.
