Boredom Busters for Little Ones This Spring
Its Springtime! The perfect time to get outside and enjoy all that nature has to offer. But when the weather keeps you cooped up inside, it can be hard for young kids who are used to running around and being active. To help keep your little ones occupied during those homebound days, here are a few boredom busters sure to bring smiles and hours of fun!
1. Take a walk and pick up rocks to paint
One great activity is a rock-hunting adventure – you can take a walk at Lake Georgetown, San Gabriel River Trail, or Pickett Trail and have the kids search for interesting rocks to bring home. Once you have collected your haul, let them paint the rocks however they like – use bright colors, add faces, make designs – whatever they can imagine!
This activity will keep them busy for hours, and when you’re finished, you’ll have some creative art pieces to show off around your house. Who said keeping little ones entertained has to be difficult?
2. Make and decorate a paper kite
This spring, making and decorating a paper kite is the perfect boredom buster. It’s an easy project that requires minimal effort but yields maximum fun! Plus, it can be done indoors or outdoors, depending on the weather.
All you need to get started are a few supplies.
- Wooden dowels
These are materials needed to make your colorful kite come alive. You can find these items at any local craft or art supply store. When they’re done decorating, take it outside and let them fly their creation in the wind. Who knows, you might even get some fun family photos out of it!
3. Make a backyard fairy garden
Creating a backyard fairy garden is an outdoor activity parents and children can enjoy together! Start by finding a lovely spot in the yard — it could be under a shady tree, beside a patio, or tucked away in the back corner.
Once the spot is chosen, start collecting found materials like stones, leaves, twigs, feathers, bark chips, and flowers to use as décor. You can also pick up special items like tiny furniture and figurines to make your garden stand out.
