Boredom Busters As Kids? What’s That?

Share your favorite boredom busters for kids

I can honestly say this; as a kid I was rarely bored. For most of my childhood, until I was 16 we didn’t even have cable tv! Internet/broadband came to India around 1996 when I was 20 but it would be another 10 years before I actually got a connection at home. So until then when did us kids do? Well for one we had a fun time at home and when we had our days off we had fun times with our cousins.

During the evenings and weekends, I read or played music. We only had two tv channels until cable came in but we rarely got an English movies on it. We did get a handful of tv shows on it but we were dependent on VHS tapes we rent out to watch our movies. That ofcourse was only during the weekends; my sister and I would pick them up on Friday evening and then watch a couple during the weekend. And I read a lot and we had membership at a couple of libraries and ofcourse we also had our own little collection of novels.

And ofcourse music. We both loved music a lot and my sister and I each had our own stereo systems and walkmans. I played mostly rock and blues while she was more pop. But with all of that who had time to get bored?
