I found a big frame at Salvation Army for cheap and painted it yellow. I have a thing for yellow. :) I framed a piece of regular poster board. Then, I used a cute font to make a title (my kids think the title is funny and fun to say--success!) and printed it out and taped it to the posterboard.
I then made some library card pockets (though I made them just a little bigger than the template I found--which I can't seem to find anymore to link to. Just google them. There are a ton out there.). I went through my scrapbook paper stash to find some paper that coordinated with the frame and the colors I used for the title.
Then, I made little "tickets" to go in the pockets. I started out making elaborate circus-ticket themed "tickets." Yeah, that went out the window real quick. Not enough time. So, we have a circus font printed on plain white cardstock.
The green ones are ones my boys can choose any time they're bored. They don't need any permission, they can just go do it. I have fun ones and chore ones. (Didn't your mom ever tell you, "Well, if you're so bored you can help do the work?" Mine did.)
The yellow ones are pretty much for anytime, too, but they have to ask permission first. The red ones are bigger activities (ones that require more advanced planning on my part than pulling out the craft supplies or something).
It's been a busy beginning of summer, so there hasn't been much chance to get bored yet, but my boys think The Bored Board is super-cool and can't wait to do all the activities in it! Me neither!
