Gryphon House Releases Banish Boredom: Activities to Do with Kids That You’ll Actually Enjoy

LEWISVILLE, N.C.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#activities–When Rebecca
took a break from practicing law to focus on her family, she
quickly realized that she also wanted to redefine what it meant to be a
stay-at-home-mom (SAHM). Now, the DC blogger behind the popular Not-So-SAHM
has turned her kid-tested, parent-approved activities into a new book
that redefines the typical activity book.

Boredom: Activities to Do with Kids That You’ll Actually Enjoy

outlines activities that Green has created with her children. Instead of
following a prebaked plan for typical activities, Green started with
what she likes to do. For example, a trip for coffee becomes a lesson in
coffee roasting. Her own successes and failures have taught her that the
cookie-cutter approach to planning learning experiences isn’t always

“It is incredibly easy to lose yourself and your own identity when you
become a parent, especially if you leave a career outside the home to
raise your children as I did,” Green
said. “But I’ve found that as our kids have grown, the most enjoyable
activities we do together started from something that I was interested
in myself and then adapted to best fit the developing personalities of
each of our children.”

The full-color book
is brimming with vivid photos that Green took of her own children doing
the activities, organized by theme: art, science, sensory, outdoor, and
field trips.
