During the last school holidays, when friends came to visit, the kids got BORED. (as they are sure to let you know!)
They had played outside...
exhausted the stash of DVD's and electronic games...
and even tried kissing frogs...but to no avail, no princes appreared!
But then they got creative.
And made two bored (oops! I mean board games)
And made these awesomely, cute little characters as playing pieces.
They spent hours making the games and even longer playing them.
I always tell my kids that boredom is the space between doing something and doing something else and that it is a good space. Just go with it and see what happens and very often amazing creativity comes from boredom.
