Is your family bored out of your minds? Are you looking for things to do when you’re bored?
It is almost impossible to keep everyone in the family happy and engaged every second of the day. It is difficult to find things to do when you’re bored. Some of your family members could spend hours and hours reading fan fiction while other family members wouldn’t spend even 1 minute reading the ingredients on a recipe card.
When one of my kids comes up to me and says, “I’m bored” I feel as if they just ran their fingernails down a chalk board. It makes me crazy! Then I start throwing out ideas that benefit me, like “unload the dishwasher”, or “Clean the hall bathroom”. That usually doesn’t help.
But don’t worry, We have got some awesome things to do when you’re bored. These FREE printables will keep your entire family engaged and amused for hours and hours.

Games and other Things to do when You’re Bored!
Sometimes when you are bored, you simply need to get creative to pass the time, be productive and stay motivated. Especially if you are together with your family. Doing things together as a family is so important.
Timer’s are my favorite tool when my family need and I need to do get something done that we don’t particularly want to do: like clean the kitchen. So we set a timer for 10 minutes, work really hard and usually, by the time that 10 minutes are up, we are done.
Here are my favorite timers:
I recently got a Fitbit that has helped me stay motivated and be more productive. You can add your kids and significant other as friends to keep each other motivated and working to stay fit.
Even as I write this, my Fitbit is going to vibrate any second and let me know that I have 125 steps to go this hour.
Here are the Fitbits that my family use. I can’t believe it took me so long to buy one.
My New Favorite Game: One of the funnest games that we have tried as a family recently is Jack Box Games
What I love about Jack Box Games is that it brings out your creativity! For those kids who are always on their phones, this is the game for them. You use your phones to answer the questions and make up answers. You also must be on your toes, so there is no dilly dallying going on.
You can check it out here! Jack Box Games.
