I tell my daughter this is a good thing...that being bored is good.
That she is responsible for figuring out a way to entertain her brain, not in front of a screen, but using her brain...Boredom is the catalyst for imagination and that to feel bored is to begin exercising your creative side. Without exercising it, our creativity will atrophy.
It is amazing how well this works for her. Sure she whines and cries for electronics to play a game like all kids of her generation, but those times are strickly limited. Mostly she needs to figure out something else to do.
DD creates books mostly. Some are fantasy, some reflect events in her life, others are research based on whatever thing she is interested in at the time. She writes them and spends hours illustrating them.
Do you see boredom as a positive thing in your house? How do you deal with it?
