What do you do when bored?

Whenever DH is home, he wants to go out and do things with DD and I. The problem is, our budget is fairly restricted, and it's still cold here in CO (though we've had some nice 50+ degree days lately) so not much in the way of outdoor activities is available at the moment. 

So what do you do to bust boredom with your SO and kids? 

I also spend a lot of time home alone with DD because DH is a flight attendant and I'm a SAHM. DD is two.

What do you do with your kids?

When I'm bored I play computer games. When others in my family and I are bored, we go for walks or watch movies.

DD LOVES movies, but I try to limit her tv time BECAUSE she loves them so much. Plus, I can only stand watching her movies so many times before they get old. :-)

It's still too cold most of the time for walks, though we have been to the park down the street and walked to McDonald's as well on the few nice days we've had.

 We sometimes do some cheapy arts & crafts projects, watch movies, read lots and lots of books.  And to tell the truth, sometimes just nothing interesting comes to mind and we just watch tv mindlessly.

With my kid, we play games... she loves David Cook, so if I turn David Cook on we can sing and dance together. She likes to watch just a little bit of TV (all of 2 shows keeps her attention)... she likes to color, paint (messy), and she plays with the dogs. Reading books, etc... I mean there's soo much... and when the weather is nice we go to the park. 

When she sleeps and I'm bored, I write. I write a lot.
