Kids get easily bored and it becomes worse if your kid is in a summer holiday break.
You will get a doubt how kids will be bored with all the playthings and activities that are present around them.
The games and kid toys that were enthusiastic and exciting before quickly lose charm after some days.
Now, it is the time to keep your children busy and joyful during their holidays. Here are few boredom busters to keep your kids occupied.
Cooking for kids: If you are thinking a productive way for your kids to spend the holidays, then cooking is the best option. Kitchen is the fun and exciting place for kids.
Cooking not only helps to develop a bond between both of you, but it is also educational. You can encourage them to do kneading and rolling out dough or cracking eggs and mixing batters. Children feel eager and happy when someone else enjoys their food.
Scavenger hunt: This game is an exciting summer activity for kids. The game can be played by dividing the children into teams. Set a time to find as many things as possible which you have picked up for the game.
The team which collects more items at the end of the time wins. If there are no teams, you can hide the items and ask your child to find the items within the specific time. Your child will enjoy finding out the things that are hidden.
Give paper to play: Ask your child to make a paper boat, paper doll or a paper plane. They will use their creativity to make things with paper.
If you want your child to make better things with paper, you can get a book from library on origami.
Origami is the Japanese art of paper folding. Your child will be interested to workout on that art in holidays.
Ask to make a card house: Give cards to your child and ask him to build card house. Ask them to start by balancing two cards against each other so that the cards stand in an inverted shape and continue from there onwards.
Ask your child to make a story tape: Ask your child to read a story from the book. After reading the story, ask him to record the story when he repeats in his own voice.
He will tell the story in his own way by making appropriate sounds related to story. When he listens to his own voice in the tape after some days, he will enjoy very much.
Protect backyard leaves and flowers: You can make your child to preserve leaves and petals of flowers that are available in your backyard. Your child will collect the petals and leaves and preserve by drying them in a press.
The press can be made from craft wood, cardboard or newsprint. A dictionary or phone book can also be used. The pressed materials can be used to create sweet note cards.
Use rubber bands for applying pressure and layers of paper for soaking moisture from leaves and petals.
Make your child to customize his room: You can give an idea to your child for customizing his bedroom. You can provide wall paintings and posters to decorate the walls of his room.
The room will look bright when this type of special touch is given. You can also help to paint the pictures on paper and stick them on the wall. This is an exciting boredom buster as your child loves to see his room attractive and bright.
They will show much interest in customizing their bedroom.
