Looking for what to do when your bored, for kids, then we have you covered. We have a great list of kids crafts and activities for your bored kids!
Are you a Mom or Dad looking for what to do when your bored for kids, then we have put together a great list that your kids will love to fill their boredom jar.
Whether they are home during a break from school or due to the weather, we have put together a fun list of activities and crafts that will keep the kids busy. What I love about this list is that you could write them all down on a piece of paper and teach your kids to check the list before coming to you with their “I’m bored.”
I understand its not always easy know what craft supplies to have on-hand for these times. I have however done the hard work for you and put together a full list of craft supplies for you.
List of Crafts and Activities for Bored Kids
These rope bowls are a fun activity for your kids that are comfortable with a hot glue gun. Depending on their age, the younger kids may need you to help them with the hot glue portion of the project. They will have fun wrapping the yarn around the rope and creating their own patterns.
Painting rocks is great for kids of all ages. If they are younger kids still learning their alphabet, they you may want to help them write the letters on the rocks. If your kids are a bit older, then you could have them paint their rocks with designs and then follow our tutorial on how to make them magnets.
This is great way to get your kids moving and on the hunt. They can find all kinds of things within the different colors including stuffed animals, office supplies, and anything else you might have around the house.
These are so fun in letting the kids imaginations run wild. They can be placed into a pattern or thrown together willy nilly. In any case they are a ton of fun and the kids will love making them.
This is a great paper plate craft. My kids love making these and putting their creative stamp on them.
Kids are always a fan of floral crowns. They can be made with fake flowers or real flowers. Use whatever you have on hand.
These are a kid favorite for both boys and girls. What I love about these is that you simply need a few piece of paper and then you have hours of fun.
This is a simple way to make your own play doh. Two ingredients that you have at home already. Three if you count the food coloring. The kids adore and and so much cleaner than slime.
Making ice cream is always fun. Even during the colder months. Just a few ingredients and a dance party shake session and viola… ice cream.
These are fun to make all year long. They are fun for candy of course and as party favors, but we have found they are also fun as a mailbox for the kids rooms and we are able to pass notes to each other and have some fun with each other.
We initially created this as an Earth day activity, but really its fun all year long. If you do not have the Earth tone yarn, then simply use what you have to make any planets. They are fun and colorful.
We love the idea of making a fort out of a painters canvas. The kids will absolutely adore the teepee. This project may take a few more items that you have lying around, but one trip to your local hardware store, and you will have a great weekend project.
Another great way to use up that extra yarn you have lying around. What I love is that you do not need a dowel from the store, you can simply use a branch from outside. My kids love making these all different colors.
A fun new way to paint that is fluffy and fun. The different dimensions the sand gives the paint is all kinds of fun. I cannot wait to see what kinds of things
This is more of a warmer day activity. If you are stuck in the house, I recommend putting down some tarps or doing it in the garage or basement.
This is a fun way for your kids to use those craft sticks. The colorful ones are more fun to make the rainbow. Even if you have the natural colored popsicle sticks, it can be fun to make.
These are of course fun during the Fall months, but also fun throughout the year. The leaves can be any color to make these fun leaf bowls.
We hope this list provides you with some bored busting time for your kids. Of course lets not forget the power of board games, couch forts and and obstacle courses through out the house. I cannot guarantee they will give you hours to yourself in the bubble bath, but maybe a few minutes to catch up on some emails.May the force be with you Mama!
