Grandma, I’m Bored!

“Grandma, I’m bored!” four year old Michael declared as if all creation should stop and solve his dilemma. 

 

From the despair in his voice you would think it was time for the sky to fall down!

 

Here are some ideas my daughter, Cindy, and I came up with to help him go from darkness to light. 

 

Cindy put pictures with these ideas so they could be cut up and put in a jar in both our homes for future use.  That way the next time the “I’m bored” monster surfaces we can simply hand him the jar and say “Have fun!”

* There is actually a picture for each activity but it didn’t come through with the cut and paste format.  If you’d like to have the document complete with pictures just email me at patripotts@mstarmetro.net.  Another idea is to use this list and let your child draw his/her own pictures!

One thought on “Grandma, I’m Bored!

  1. Those are great pictures and great ideas. Maybe we need one of those jars at our house! (except, of course, it would be brushing MY hair and rubbing MY feet! 🙂 Does he really do that?
    Loveyou !
