Summer Anti-Boredom List

Before summer vacation turns into a boredom fest, sit down as a family and make a summer anti-boredom list. Write down a mixture of long overdue chores that youíve been meaning to get done, along with goals and dreams that youíve always wanted to accomplish. Donít leave out the fantastic! If youíve always wanted to ride on a unicorn, even though there is no such animal, write it down. You may read the list one day when youíre bored, see the unicorn wish, and decide to take horseback riding lessons.

With an anti-boredom list displayed prominently on the refrigerator, fun is just around the corner. Take a look at my familyís summer anti-boredom list to get an idea. By the way, can you tell which entries belong to our five-year-old son?

  • Learn karate.
  • Order room service.
  • Become one with a hammock.
