It is spring break and kids get very bored during this time. We got to keep them busy so they do not get into any trouble.I have a 25 year old daughter who keeps herself very busy these days but when she was a kid she was always bored. I also have 2 step kids, a 10 year old and a 14 year old and they are always bored.

But now that it is spring break, the boredom is even worse. On Sunday the 10 year old and 14 year old where saying how bored that they are. Well, that might just be the wrong thing to say to me especially since there is a ton of stuff that needs to be done.

The first thing that I had them do was help me carry the landscaping rock over to where I am using it. Second they pulled weeds. I have over 2 acres of weeds. That kept them busy for about 3 hours. By the time they were done, they were tired and telling me they will never say that they are bored again.

However, I saw how good they did so now this is something that they are going to do all of the time. I will keep them busy and teach them how to be responsible and strong all at the same time!

But, keeping them busy doesn't always have to be work and stuff that is hard. Today I bought my kids paint. They are going to paint some of the larger rocks they carried to make them look like a giant worm in my garden. Once they have finished, they will see all their hard work has paid off and we have a fantastic garden! BOOM!
