Why Explore Fictional Characters?

Summer is a time to relax and have fun with your kids. You may be tempted (and they may be begging) to turn on the TV, video games and other electronic devices to cure your kids’ boredom. But it’s healthier to encourage your kids to connect with fictional characters that don’t require an “on” switch.

Books introduce you to an endless range of incredible fictional characters and give you a peek into places and times you may have never imagined—even whole new imaginary worlds. (Dr. Seuss, anyone?)

You and your kids can enjoy your favorite books and the characters you meet in them long after you’ve reached “The End.”

Why Make Time for Quick Adventures?

Any time you spend with your kids can be quality time; you just have to find it and fill it with something fun.

Think of those little 10-minute chunks of time in between other things: while you’re driving to and from school, waiting for activities to start or end, having a snack, getting ready for dinner or bed… Often these short slots of time are filled with TV or video games, but you can fill them with fun family activities instead.

There are plenty of mini-adventures you can have with your kids in those short slices of time between other things, so make the most of those little moments. Fill them with something fun before the kids have a chance to check out and get bored.

These boredom-buster activities for kids will make it easy.
