Cool Creations: Boredom Box

      Boredom Box

By Mari Jackson

What is it?
The boredom box is a box that gives you an idea of something to do when you're bored. Whether it's raining outside, you're home alone, or you're just plain bored, the boredom box has you covered.

How does it work?

It's simple! Just close your eyes and pull one of the many pieces of paper inside the box out. The writing on the piece of paper will give you an idea of something to do!

What do you need to make it?

Here are the materials you'll need to make a boredom box:
-A box (Any size or color works; I used one of my mom's stitch fix boxes)
-Markers, colored paper, or anything else you want for decorating your boredom box
-Small pieces of paper

How do you make it?

First, decorate your box however you like. Next, you'll create the pieces of paper with suggestions for what to do on them. First, write the suggestions, then decorate them. I'd suggest making as many as you can. The more, the better. After that, just put them in the box.

What can you include on the suggestion papers?

If you normally have a limited amount of screen time, I'd suggest not including anything on the pieces of paper that includes a screen. Here are some things that I included:
-Create your own holiday.
-Invent something that helps senior citizens.
-Create your own superhero.
-Make wedding plans for your dream wedding.
-Write about what you would do if you became president.

What are some things that you would include in your boredom box? Be sure to comment below. Thanks for reading, and be on the lookout for more blogs by me!
