Bored? A list of LEGIT things to do when you’re bored.

20 Jul

Running out of things to do this weekend? Here are a few ideas:

  1. Paint an old photo frame or book case – add some color and redo it; you can buy stencils at your local craft store to decorate
  2. Reuse the old jeans you’re about to throw away – buy some zipper at your local craft store (or use the one already on there) and cut out two small rectangles. Hot glue them and add the zipper to make a change purse. Since they’re small, you can use the rest of the jeans to make matching ones for your friends. Add glitter or jewels to decorate it, fabric flowers look cute too!
  3. Bake cookies or a cake – you can decorate them with homemade frosting (yum! 🙂 )
  4. Learn to make origami – believe me it takes patience, but there are some cool things you can make!
  5. Tye-Dye T-Shirts  – Bye a  tye-dye kit or make your own and use an old plain shirt, a white purse, even socks work
  6. Decorate an empty wall in your room – fill it with posters, pictures, or if your parents will let you, paint a mural!
  7. Find something you’ve been looking for
  8. Do a puzzle – this will take time and keep you busy
  9. Read a book – go to the library and get a book (one you will actually want to read!)
  10. Make a fruit smoothie – yum! (my recipe: strawberries, mango, banana, and some honey or sugar) healthy too.
  11. Sing Karaoke
  12. Learn to French braid your own hair – not as easy as it seems if you’re trying to make it look good!
  13. Take all your photos and make a scrapbook or a photo album
  14. Prank calls – don’t forget to *64 it
  15. See how many licks it actually takes to get to the center of a tootsie pop
  16. Build a huge house of cards!
  17. See how long you can hold your breath
  18. Rearrange the furniture in your room
  19. Make a list of things people don’t know about you
  20. Start a diary
  21. Make a list of everything that bugs you!
  22. Give yourself a facial – when you’re done put on your makeup and get dressed up, go out and show off your new look!
  23. Visit somewhere in your city you’ve never been – you’d be surprised, if you look up on tourists websites, there are probably so many places around your city that are tourist attractions you didn’t even know about!
  24. Go to the costume/party store – buy a wig, outfit, glasses, etc. Be someone new for the day!
  25. Go facebook stalking 😉
  26. Get a penpal – if you take a foreign language at school, (i.e. french) get a french penpal and see how well you can actually speak!
  27. Movie Marathon – Invite friends over and watch all your favorite movies, if it’s a series and a new one is coming out (i.e. Pirates of the Carribean) finish the day off by going to see the new one!
  28. Make a fake video – grab some friends and a video camera, go to your local park and act like legit reporters (for a newspaper or college of TV channel) and interview people with akward/funny questions
  29. Sell your merchandise – decorate boring T-shirts, purses, etc. and sell them on the street. See how much money you can make
  30. Make your own ice cream and cake – yum!
  31. Do chalk graffiti – Google tricks and tips for chalk artists, maybe get a few stencils, and plan what to draw. Go out into the city and graffiti! (You can’t get in trouble for this I don’t think because it washes away in the next rain shower, but if it’s in front of a store you might want to ask)
  32. Visit
  33. Visit
  34. Check out these ACTUAL chalk artists – CHALK1, CHALK2
  35. Make your own list of things to do!
