I’m Bored! List

On a recent blog, I posted some of the things I do to keep my kids busy and learning during our summer break. One of the things was creating a 100 Things To Do If Bored List. I just recently came up with this summer’s list and thought it might be useful as a Tip Of The Day.  Feel free to copy it and change it to suit your family! (It may be a little more or less than 100. I stopped counting in the 80’s.)
