Boredom Busters Overview

As a part of this community the Lincoln Children’s Museum strives to be a part of everyday life by providing opportunities to use the Power of Play.  Even though we are doing things differently these days, we are still creating fun - and we want to share it with you!

Join us on Facebook daily at 10:30 am for BOREDOM BUSTERS that encourage your child to create, discover and learn through play!  We'll feature a new topic each day by providing a mix of activities, experiments, videos, books, songs, jokes and more.  After our live we will provide links and even some additional materials that you can expand on after the Facebook live event!  All episodes, links, and materials will then be archived on this page for easy access.

Have an idea that you’d like to see us build out?  Email us at

See you soon…be there, or be BORED!
