Day 178 (of 185) scheduling play
I’ve mentioned in the past that sometimes life goes so fast I’ve scheduled boredom breaks – because it isn’t often that I have. Irving to do/don’t know what to do.
I even irritate my kids on the few times they’ve complained about being boooooorrrred by responding “you’re lucky. Stop bragging”.
I like boredom time because it’s a chance for the brain to do some processing and catch up on synthesizing and connecting thoughts. I also appreciate the times to “play” no matter what the age. Especially in the summer when kids enter a time of lack-of-structure and sometimes don’t know what to do when it hasn’t been scheduled for them.
So a couple of schedules to share.
From our district healthy living coordinator @laurapaiement some options for summer fun as a “recipe”:
From our friends at ParticipAction some more ideas connected to #Canada150:
Although, fair warning that a former student/football player I worked with mixed up what one of the suggestions was…..
Always important to have fun!
