“The days are long, but the years are short,” is how the saying goes. Well, the days are really, really long when you’re isolating at home during a pandemic. The days are made even longer still when you have kids telling you how bored they are every 15 minutes. Sure you can just tell them to go read a book or find something to do, but the reality is, that kids are very visual and motivated by goals.
Enter, Boredom BINGO! An easy-to-see, easy-to-use system for managing their boredom independently.
You as the parent get to decide what their reward will be for getting a BINGO on their sheet, so it is customizable to your family. I recommend printing off the page and slipping it inside of a sheet protector or even laminating it to make it reusable for the future. We own these dry erase pockets from amazon and use them in a variety of learning activities at home. Then just use a marker to tick off the squares as they complete them throughout the day, erase and reuse as many times as you like.
