What causes someone to be bored? 

There really isn’t just one thing that causes people to be bored but rather a few different factors. Some people are bored because they’re out of ideas while other people like to do things that are asked of them and respond better to activities that way. Either way, boredom can be overcome with just a few simple changes.

Other boredom buster ideas to consider

Just because I’m all about finding ways to keep the kids active, I’ll throw out a few other ideas as well for ways to stay engaged and active. 

Recycling and repurposing old items at home is a great way to think outside the box. (and using a cardboard box and turning it into something cool is always a good idea!) 

Write letters to family and friends and become pen pals. What a simple way to bring a smile to someone’s face! Everyone loves getting anything in the mail that isn’t a bill so sending out letters and drawing pictures to mail is a way to spread kindness and love. 

As you can tell, once the wheels in your mind start turning, the sky is the limit on things to do!
