When you are at home there are many activities you can do at home with family to entertain yourself. For example, if you play a sport you could practice and catch a ball, or you could even go on a walk with your family. Another thing you could do is go in the backyard and play with your pet, or you could even play a board game with your family and friends. If you can’t do any of those things, you could bake with your family and create a new recipe, or maybe you could get some popcorn and watch a movie. Another thing I like to do is paint. It takes a long time, but every time you do it with company, time never matters. If you have a sibling or friend who likes playing video games you could play a game that you both enjoy together.
If you are feeling adventurous, you could even reach out to your local school to find family activities that they offer. My school, Tamarack, always makes everything fun with family nights and projects. At Tamarack they host family fun nights. For example, they host Tamarack Edge Ice night and the Tamarack Carnival. When you go to the Edge Ice family night, you can meet up with your friends or even convince your parents or siblings to ice skate with you. At Tamarack Carnival night, there are always large, thrill-seeking rides that friends and family can enjoy, and even game booths to earn prizes.
There are plenty of ways to “bust” your boredom at home and at local events! It doesn’t matter if you get rid of your boredom at home or at events, it just matters that you figure out at least one way and you have fun doing it! It’s super important to spend time with your family and friends because it can mean a lot to them, and it could strengthen your relationship with them.
