It's February in NYC, and schools are closed for a week. We're in the middle of a pandemic, and your kids are BORED. Stumped for ideas? Pull out some of these boredom busters:
Hike (kids HATE walking, but finding a trail in a local park or state park turns walking into an ADVENTURE. Bonus points if the trail has markers to look for!)
Visit the zoo
Visit a botanic garden
Make paper snowflakes (designs to get you started)
Play a board game
Build a fort
Play The Floor is Lava
Have a picnic on the living room floor
Play balloon volleyball
Make a family scrapbook or time capsule using photos and videos from this year
Set an alarm on your phone and hide it. See if the rest of the family can find it before it goes off.
Do a puzzle together
Take turns choosing a movie to watch. Introduce your kids to the classics from your childhood.
Make a big bin of water beads
Have a scavenger hunt
Have more ideas? Please share!
