Solution to Summer Boredom

Our second week of summer has been great so far. I really enjoy having my kids home during the day, and it’s nice having the option to plan and do whatever we want. But I kind of have a love/hate relationship with lazy summer days-

I love sleeping in, I love lounging in my pajamas, and I love not having a school schedule to stick to. (Plus, not having homework each weeknight is pretty much icing on the cake!)

But I hate wasting a day being unproductive, I hate how messy my house gets when we’re home all day, I hate when kids fight over silly things and I hate when they ask to eat every 20 minutes just because they are bored!

Summer Sanity Savers for Mom

One idea I decided to implement this year to help tackle summer boredom and days of laziness is this fun BORED acronym printable.

In my home, we call this “The-Chart-That-Must-Be-Complete-Before-X-Box-Is-Turned-On”. This nifty little printable is a great way to offer some variety to your summer days. No more screen-time all day, every day.

…Because lazy summer days are great, but lazy summer months make me want to pull my hair out! 😉
