What to Do When You are Bored

10 fun boredom buster ideas using Nestlé® Crunch®

Let me first start off this list with a little note about candy boredom busters in my house. My kids sneak all my candy all the time. They think that if they only take one, I won't notice and they are probably right. But they continue to repeat their only one sneak approach and 3 days later half my bag of candy, for my project, is gone. I have found myself saying “Stop Eating My Work” for the last week! That could be boredom buster #1… but I'll call it a bonus you can add to the list.

These ideas are in no particular order… for more fun boredom busting ideas, check out the Nestlé® Crunch® facebook page #LifeHacktoBoredom

Count the candy pieces

  1. Put a bunch of Nestlé® Buncha Crunch® in a little jar and have everyone guess how many candy pieces are in the jar. The winner gets to keep the jar of candy.

2. Grab a bag of Nestlé® Crunch® Fun Size Bars and see how high you can stack them. It's fun to watch the kids figure out different ways to stack the candy. Note: we did try to play a little JENGA, but that lasts just long enough to pull out one candy bar.

3. Get out the toy trains and build a yummy train track with a whole bag of Nestlé® Crunch® Fun Size Bars. How far can you build the track before you have to eat one?

4. Remember that jar of Nestlé® Buncha Crunch®? Empty out the jar and play a game of desk ball – try to toss each candy piece back into the jar. You get to eat what you miss!

5. Feeling crafty? grab a needle and thread and string some Nestlé® Buncha Crunch® into a bracelet or candy necklace. Tip: the candy pieces that had a dent in the center string the best.

7. Instead of chocolate chips, use Nestlé® Buncha Crunch® in your favorite cookie mix. We used Cake Mix Cookies and placed the candies on the cookie dought before baking instead of mixing into the dough.

  1. When I am bored, I love searching for new, unique recipes. I look on cooking blogs and Pinterest for some inspiration! 🙂

  2. I’ve never been bored in my life but thats probably because there is always a book near hand so I would say reading as a boredom buster.

  3. I have a 9 month old baby boy, there’s no such thing as bored, lol. But if there were, just hanging out with the little guy would be the boredom buster.

  4. My favorite boredom buster is to read, and to play games on my tablet such as plants vs zombies, hidden object game, card games or scrabble, are my faves.
