We are under an Island wide shut down, yet again..sigh...this Winter seems to be never-ending. The start of the Kids March Break as well- thought I would share a few ideas for when they come to you today or a day this week, and say "I'm Bored" hope these ideas help, or create new ideas to do- let us know how you make it over the week! hope you can take a moment or two, to relax and enjoy the break, and make some memories as a family. Take care of yourselves! Hope shoveling out doesn't take too long!

Decorate a jar, or box and use and a bit of creativity to make our “I’m Bored” jar fun! If you are stumped about what activities to include in your jar, here are some of our favourites-
  • Make an obstacle course
  • Read a book
  • Call a grandparent
  • Write in your journal
  • Play a board game
  • Eat ice cream or a special treat
  • Interview a family member
  • Make cookies with a parent
  • Do an art project
  • Watch a movie with popcorn
  • Have a friend come over
  • Draw a picture
  • Plan a family activity
  • Do a good deed for someone of your choice
  • Take pictures of anything you want
  • Play a game on the computer for half an hour
  • Help mom plan dinner
  • Build a fort indoors
  • Dance
  • Go on a scavenger hunt
  • Play dress up
  • Put on a sock puppet show
  • Play hide and seek
If you make an “I’m Bored” jar of your own, let us know your favourite activities you included in it, and how it turned out when it came time to using it!
