WFMW: “Mom, I’m Bored” Edition

Yep, you read that right.

For the last 4 years, I’ve shared a “Mom, I’m Bored List” list with you on WFMW and hundreds of blogs have linked up their tips too. There are literally thousands of ideas at your fingertips.

Our kids have no reason to ever be bored ever again.

But I’m not going to lie: our summer is going to look a lot like this: sleep, swim, library, a craft or two, repeat. I’m all about the lazy schedule. Oh, and about 17 days in a third world country.

Here are 441 fun ideas I found while looking around:

50 Inspiring Rainy Day Activities

80 Inexpensive Ideas for Summer Fun

50 Summer Crafts

11 Summer Water Games

50 Ways to Keep Kids Minds Active during Summer

50 Screen-Free Ideas

100 Free Things to do this Summer

50 Projects to Make with Duct Tape


You’re free to link up any tips, but if you have old or new posts with boredom busters, please share!

    My little one is not quite old enough to holler “I’m bored” yet (16 months) but I will tuck this list away for future reference. Or for when I’m bored. :)

    This is my first time linking up! Thanks for hosting!

    I don’t think our boys ever said “i’m bored” more then 1 time. We would always have chores or something if they didn’t have anything to do. We lived out in the country so they spent lots of time hiking and looking for Indian artifacts and arrow heads. Then we had our own store which they worked at when they got old enough- our youngest was handing out coffee and entertaining customers when he was about 4! They are both hard workers today!

    I heard the first (ever) “I’m bored” out of my oldest (age 5) about 2 weeks ago. I told him it is one of the worst words he could ever say :) Thank you for this list!
