In Homeschool

We finished our school year this past week. With wide open space in front of me, my excitement builds. I have piles of ideas of how to spend my time, but I find that my kids sometimes need an infusion of ideas. I have heard too many times to count: “I don’t know what to do.  What should I do?” One of the ways I combat this bothersome question is by creating a “Boredom Busters” sheet of ideas BEFORE the question comes.  Then when they ask the inevitable question, I just point to the sheet. I like to list ideas that a kid can do alone — at least for most of the work.  It’s funny how one busy kid can attract other people to his/her idea and draw a crowd of interested parties.  

I have updated the “Boredom Busters” idea sheet as the kids’ interests have changed and always at the start of the summer. Today I spent about an hour thinking of what interests my son and got quite a page full of ideas.  Since this is my biggest list by far, I thought I would post it in case it triggers any ideas of activities for your kids too. If you have any questions about what I’ve listed, feel free to comment below.
