“I’m bored!”  “There’s nothing to do!” These words are like nails on a chalkboard for parents whose houses are overflowing with toys and games for kids.  It seems that the more things our children possess, the less creative they become with their play.  Over-stimulation brought on by too many toys can lead to inertia.  Break the stalemate with this list of fun, creative kid,-pleasing activities.

Print out our FREE printables below (click the images for the pdf version) and then hang them on your refrigerator for easy reference.  (The first printable is geared toward older school-aged children. The second one is more for early elementary aged kids.)
