These boredom busters will have kids running instead of whining.  Don’t you love being able to stop “I am bored” right in its tracks?  The fun thing about kids is they don’t WANT to be bored.  They don’t WANT to rest.  They want to play.

Today’s kids activities have been some of my favorites that have been linked up in the It’s Playtime kids meme.  Really amazing ideas from blogs all over the world.
