How many times have we heard the words “I’m bored!!!”? Or if you’re my 4 year old “I’m so bo-ooring!”. Now that we’re spending so much more time at home, it’s more important than ever to have a trusty vault of activities to bust those boredom blues!
7 Ideas to End Your Kids’ Boredom
Disney Hits Music Dance Party
“Alexa, Play Disney Hits!”
One of my kids’ favorite ways to break out of a boredom funk is to have a dance party! Disney Hits is the happiest playlist on earth. They love streaming while they’re playing in their rooms, making their beds, waiting for dinner or playing outside.

Kids are experiencing a wide range of feelings right now without really knowing how to communicate and understand those emotions. Feeling Through Colors from Action for Healthy Kids (nonprofit) is a fun way to explore these feelings through art and color while battling boredom.
