9 Summer boredom busters for teen boys. | Capturing-Joy.com9 Summer Boredom Busters for Teen Boys are a bit more advanced than the frilly stuff for the girls. Get the teen boys off of their videos, and provide other boredom options for those summer days that they just can’t figure out what to do! Boys like to be creative too, just in a different way. From games to artwork, I’ve gathered a good variety. There is a TON of info out on the internet to keep young kids busy and engaged during long summer months, but not a WHOLE lot for teen boys like I have. I thought it was a good idea to put together Summer Boredom Busters for Teen Boys, if only for MYSELF! My boys love their video games, and I just want to provide other options for them.
