Boredom Schmoredom (with an old sponge)

Ok, so technically this might not count as a proper “Boredom Schmoredom” example, because this wasn’t Echo’s own idea, but I wanted to include it anyway because it’s just such a super-fun, mega-easy, zero-electronics activity that really pretty much any family can pull off. All you have to do is use some scissors on an old sponge or two (or however many you want…) to make whatever shapes you want (e.g. a crescent moon, a star, or a four leaf clover…). Then get some paper (preferably car stock if you want durability), and put some tempera paint on a plate. Then just dip and stamp to your heart’s delight!

Echo and Mama did this yesterday for Valentine’s card-making, but kids can enjoy an activity like this any time and at pretty much any age. Outside of the set-up and clean-up (which can be kept minimal [or delegated to older kids]), the parents can leave it all up to the wee artists and watch the fun ensue. And nothing beats a kid-made card for friends and family.

Be well.
