Week 20: Summertime Bored Board

For 2016, each week I will share a new way you can use The Trip Clip as a learning tool. I’d love to hear any feedback you have, or other ways you’ve found to teach your kids using The Trip Clip!

Week 20: Summertime Bored Boards

It never fails.  After 9 months of wishing for summer to come, and complaining about all the things they can’t do because they’re stuck in school all day, when summer finally arrives it usually takes less than a week before I hear grumbles of “I’m bored! There’s nothing good to do here.”  Followed almost immediately by requests to turn on the screens.

I’ve seen lots of versions of this awesome image on Pinterest, and I think about it whenever my kids complain that they’re bored:

I thought this was brilliant, and decided to use The Trip Clip to turn it into a Bingo Board – the first in my series of Bingo Bored Boards!

For this Bored Board, each column gives them a choice on the letters in BORED  (B for Be creative, O for Outdoor play, etc).

When my kids are totally uninspired by EVERYTHING, there is always something on one of these boards that sparks an idea and gets them off and running on something fun. You can easily make your own Bored Board. Choose from more than 500 pictures, and edit the text under any picture to make it just right for your kids. pinit2

I love these Bingo Boards because even when my kids are totally uninspired by EVERYTHING, there is always something on one of these boards that sparks an idea and gets them off and running on something fun.

The Trip Clip Bingo activity allows endless customization of these Bingo Boards.

  1. There are more than 500 pictures to choose from
  2.  You can edit the text under any picture, so you can make your own Bored Board that makes sense for you.

I had fun giving myself some themes to help keep my creativity flowing as I made the boards below. This one uses the letters in BINGO – each column has an activity that starts with the letter at the top of the column.

In this next one, I chose a set of activities for each day of the week, so you can challenge your child to complete all 4 activities each day.

Random Bored Board

With this next one, I allowed the website to select a random set of images for the Bored Board.  I did that by selecting “Custom” in the left column, and then clicking Refresh above the Bingo Board.  Then I did my best to come up with something creative my kids could do with each image on the board.

Imagination Bored Board

I did the same thing for this last board, but I removed all the labels.  You could hand this board to your kids and challenge THEM to think up something creative they can do with each of these images!
