WHEN YOUR KIDS ARE BORED

It's summer time and if you do not have your kids signed up for summer camp, you can be guaranteed to hear, "I'm bored," several hundred times a day. Today's kids are so hooked on electronics it is hard to get them to focus on anything else.  Here are a few ideas to kick-start some fun during the day, especially on rainy, indoor days!  

Let them use their imagination and have fun the "old school" way.  Let them play outside and play hide & seek or run around with the sprinklers on. Play slip & slide or a good old fashion game of four-square or hop-scotch.  How about Red Rover?  Does anyone remember that game? There are a lot of fun things your kids can do, it's just a matter of taking the time to steer them in the right direction.
