What to Do When Your Child Says “Mommy, I’m Bored”

“Mommy, I’m bored…” is definitely one of the most common phrases to come out of my child’s mouth. Over the years, I have learned how to defend against the inevitable boredom that sets in after my children spend too much time playing with the same toys and games day after day. The versatility of a child activity table has been a lifesaver for me and my kids.

I have found that setting up a comfortable table that is full of different designs and colors entices my children to play and stimulates their imaginations. As the kids color books or draw, they improve their hand-eye coordination and enhance their motor skills. While they build impressive building block structures or assemble dominoes, they are nurturing skills like problem-solving and creative thinking. The child activity table is also a great place for my kids to interact with friends. They love showing off their artwork, and I love watching them build social skills.

Most child activity tables are also low maintenance. I find it very easy to clean up spills, wipe off marker and fold it up for easy storage. I would definitely recommend that any parent or grandparent set one up. It is a great tool for fostering ingenuity and helps keep the childhood years free from boredom.

    Here from Newly Crunchy Mama of 3 – I believe creativity is as big a part of child development as any. When it comes to coloring, drawing, crafting it can change every time they put their mind to it. We have the Step 2 desk and shelves to go right beside it planned for an upcoming birthday.

    Here from Newly Crunchy mama of 3, I’d really like to see a wall of shelves, drawers open spaces, pull down doors with a few hooks etc as an option for the desks. It would really spice up a play room!

    This is also great for rainy days or snow days! Our desk/easel is wonderful to stop the littles from crying when they want to be outside and cannot.

    This looks very exciting so I will be looking for one of these. This will be good when it’s just too hot to go outside this summer.
