Although right now we’re in the throes of Spring (my allergies can totally attest to that) Summer will soon be upon us! I just wrote an article for the magazine I contribute to on How to Organize Your Summer Vacation, and then it dawned on me: maybe not everyone GOES on summer vacation. I mean, growing up, we always did. I guess I got used to that. But some folks would rather be at home, which is a great way to spend the summer, too! As long as you’re not hearing the words, “I’m bored!” within the first day of Summer vacation. Ugh.
So when Katleen Brown contacted me about a post full of ways to keep a day at home entertaining, I figured it was the perfect follow-up! She’s got some fantastic ideas here! Check them out!
Sometimes, staying at home can cause boredom, especially if one is not creative enough to figure out what can make a day spent indoors FUN. For those with children, it can be unfortunate if one has no ideas on how they can make the stay at home enjoyable.
It is essential to learn about ways to keep the children, and yourself relaxed and entertained as you spend time indoors.
Make Finger Puppets
This is one way of letting the children have fun as they exercise their creativity. They can remain busy for several hours, and therefore, you will not have to listen to them complaining of boredom or wanting to go out. They do not need a lot of things for this activity. They only require having papers and paint boxes as well as some glue. You can help them make monsters or even animals. Using these tools, you can help them to make stories. If you have one child, you can help him or her through the whole process and provide moral support. However, you can invite other kids to your house and have them work with your child. If you have two more kids in the house, you can assist them for a while and then leave them to have fun and exercise creativity on their own.
