Ways to beat summer boredom

Summer vacation is less than a week away, and you don’t want to waste a minute of it! Personally, my summers can get pretty boring when my friends go to sleepaway camp or travel. Here are some ways to beat that summer boredom:

  • Make a cool video and learn to edit. (For beginners, I would recommend using iMovie.)
  • Have a spa day. You can either go out or make your own spa at home.
  • Go to a trampoline park (like SkyZone or Bounce).
  • Walk or bike to the park, with a friend or alone. It will help you reach some needed bliss.
  • Have a sand castle contest with friends. Others at the beach will end up joining you!
  • Babysit your sibling or find someone to babysit by making flyers and giving them to your neighbors.
  • Learn how to sew from a family member or the internet.
  • Play some fun online games (go to Cool Math for really fun ones).
  • Organize your room or junk drawer for some well-deserved comfort.
  • Help the community by volunteering and picking up trash at your local park.
