If you get tired of hearing, "I'm bored!" and "I can't think of anything to do!", you're going to love this new free set printable posters full of ideas of boredom busters for kids.

I'm usually a pretty creative mama. I can think of clever ways to keep my boys engaged in an activity. And use things around our home to keep it frugal.

But, when I'm tired, distracted, or hangry, forget it. My creativity switch turns off - and the boys end up on screens more than I like.

With this self-knowledge, I try to be prepared with simple and fun activities for my kids, like brain breaks and fitness prompts.

And now I'm super excited to add these posters for fun boredom busters to our fun collection!

Tips & Tricks for Success with Boredom Busters for Kids

Before you give your younger kids and older kids these posters, chat about the boredom busters (if you're using the completed version). If you're going with one of the customizable styles, make a list of ideas and talk about them.

Make sure you have the supplies your kids will need for these boredom busters. There's nothing worse than getting excited about an activity and then realizing you don't have what you need. (Like when I get a craving for my nana's brownies and realize that my little hobbits have eaten all our chocolate chips - grr!)

Some suggestions are:

  • Crayons
  • Pencils
  • Markers
  • Color pencils
  • Sidewalk chalk
  • Glue
  • Yarn
  • Buttons
  • Stickers
  • Popsicle sticks
  • Construction paper

Get clear on your expectations. Use my free printable set to help you set rules and expectations for fun activities with kids.

Be open to your kids' suggestions. They might have creative takes on how to do a boredom buster. As long as it's safe, go for it!

Customize! Make these boredom busters work for you. Tweak where you need to and learn as you go.
