SAC Program Activity Reminder List!

Sharing is caring!

I’m Bored! (This list of ideas goes with the I’m Bored Tip page

I believe that something like the BELOW long list of activity ideas is a GOOD TOOL to post on a program wall.

  • When a child says,I don’t know what to do,after talking to them a bit, you can ask if they checked out the list for some ideas of what they feel like doing.
  • Additionally, this list serves as a reminder to staff members of activitiesthat could easily be accomodated!
  • And third,when anyone passes your posted areas-they may think — Hey! They do a lot of stuff here! (Of course the list is in addition to having a monthly activity calendar posted) See the below Listfor a sample…
