Being a stay at home mom is a wonderful job, but some days are downright boring!

I’ve found that if I don’t have a plan to do something, I’ll find myself sitting on the couch, scrolling my phone.

This means I don’t get much done, and I feel badly about myself.

So instead, I like to have a list of ideas for those days. That way I feel more productive and have fun which makes me a better mom to my kids!

Here are 50 things you can do too!
