We have all heard this: ‘Mommy, I’m bored, I don’t know what to do,’ even though they have a room filled with toys. 

When your child tells you he’s bored, it’s a great opportunity to encourage creativity and problem-solving skills.

Encourage them to explore their interests and figure out what to do by themselves. Here are however some ideas:

1. Create a boredom buster jar: Write down different activities on small pieces of paper and put them in a jar. When your child is bored, they can pick a random activity from the jar to do.

2. Encourage creativity: Provide art supplies, building blocks, or craft materials that your child can use to create something new.

3. Get active: Encourage your child to go outside and play, ride a bike, or go for a walk. Physical activity can help boost their mood and energy levels.

4. Set up a playdate: Arrange for your child to spend time with a friend or family member to engage in activities together.

5. Explore new hobbies: Introduce your child to new hobbies or interests, such as gardening, cooking, or learning a musical instrument.

Remember, it’s crucial to encourage your child to use their imagination and find ways to entertain themselves. This not only helps them pass the time but also fosters their creativity and problem-solving abilities, which are essential skills for their future.
