Summer's here, you're outta school and you're probaby screaming, "Free at last!" But when there's no one telling you what to do, boredom can creep up on you. July is Anti-Boredom Month, so fight back with these boredom-busting activities!

Boredom Busters - Wacky Workout

Learn a new sport, literally. Forget typical sports like baseball and basketball, but pick up something that's totally weird and wacky. Whether it's unicycling or parkour (free running), you'll get in great shape and enjoy it cuz you've never participated in such a sport before!

Boredom Busters - Backyard Camping

Camp out in your backyard! Ask the 'rents to help you pitch a tent and invite a few friends over for a sleepover. You can toast marshmallows on a grill and sit around the "campfire" telling each other spooky ghost stories.

Boredom Busters - Virtual Tours

Pick a country and learn everything there is to know about that place. Read up on its history, customs and major tourist sites cuz you may end up traveling to that place one day. Also try exploring another culture through the library, cultural centers and ethnic restaurants.

Boredom Busters - Games Night

Break out classic board games like Monopoly, Backgammon and Yahtzee! They're fun to play and a great way to spend some time with the fam. If you're not a fan of the old-skool games, then check out new ones like Snap TV 2006 FIFA World Cup Game or Harry Potter Scene It.

Boredom Busters - Get Scrappy

Start a scrapbook. Make it your mission to go on a fun adventure every few days, like hiking a new trail in your neighborhood park or discovering seashells and cool-looking rocks at the beach. Take pics and collect fun things from your adventures and add them to your book. By the end of the summer, your scrapbook will be bursting at the seams!
