shoe box or carton
duct tape in any colour
Use any old box, any size will do. I used a milk carton and covered it using blue duct tape.
Use popsicle sticks and write one activity on each stick. Color code one end of the sticks for indoor and outdoor activities.
Let the kids decorate the bored box!
Place the popsicle inside the bored box with the colored ends up.
When the kids are bored, have them choose and indoor or outdoor stick (depending on the weather).
Once that activity has been completed, place the stick back in the bored box with the colored end pointing down.
After all of the activities have been completed, flip the sticks back up with the colored end on top.
Here are a few suggestions for the bored box, but please feel free to add more in the comments section. You can make this suitable for toddlers all the way to husbands?! 🙂
Ideas for your partner or husband's bored box…. well, I'll leave that to you! 🙂
