"We're bored." Your kids whine this like members of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness chant the Hare Krishna mantra. You can waste hours trying to give them ideas for something to do that they don't reject with scorn, or simply hand them Unbored: The Essential Field Guide to Serious Fun ($18) and let it do the work for you. This book is packed with activities for indoor, outdoor, or online fun. If nothing else, it will at least buy you a few precious minutes while they browse through it and argue about what to do.
