There is a lot of togetherness right now. And that can be a good thing…but it can also be A LOT sometimes. This simple little paper chain craft is designed to help break up the boredom. It is filled with boredom buster activities for kids. You just pull a link off when things are getting to be a bit much and you need to change things up for a bit. Each activity should take about 30 minutes or less.

To get you started, I have come up with 50 fun boredom buster activities that you can use with your family! (like create an obstacle course, go to an amusement park virtually, develop a secret family handshake…and so many more!)

Step 3: Make the Links

  • First, roll one of the strips into a circle and staple it to form the first link. The writing should go inside so that it is more of a surprise when a link is removed.
  • Then, slide the second strip of paper through the first and staple it into a circle.
  • To finish it off, keep making links in the same way until the chain is as long as you want it to be.
