Boredom Busters

I am trying to get ahead of summer by coming up with some activities and ideas to keep Aiden busy and all three of us active once school is out.  One thing I know I will need are some 'Boredom Busters'.  Aiden told me Saturday morning, and hour and fifteen minutes after he woke up, that he was bored.  Seriously?  In that short amount of time he'd eaten, gotten dressed, brushed him teeth and made him bed, so it's not like he was just sitting around not doing anything.  Right then and there I realized I needed an arsenal of ideas for when he told me for the 100th time that he was bored.  So I came up with the idea for a jar of 'Boredom Buster' ideas.  I don't have it made yet but here is the list of ideas I have come up far. :)
