Creative Boredom Busters

Beat boredom with your friends with the help of these fun ideas. Whether you have an hour or a whole day to spare, the time you spend with your barkada will always be fun!

Pocket Board Games
Make sure you always have fun even on the go! Your favorite board games like Monopoly, Taboo, Cranium, and Scrabble now all have pocket-sized playing card versions that you can keep handy in your backpack or school locker. These games are fun but they also work your brain! They can be enjoyed in the short span of half an hour but can also keep the gang entertained for the whole afternoon.

Scavenger Hunt
When you and your friends have a couple of hours to enjoy together, it's always fun to organize a scavenger hunt! Keep it simple by putting together a list of random items to look for within a specific part of the neighborhood or of the mall. Or get creative and vary the hunt by making it a photo scavenger hunt, incorporating some fun challenges or dares to be accomplished. Vary the time limit, depending on how much free time everyone has. You can even get some help with creating your own scavenger hunt online with ScavengerHunt.Org. Make sure to stay hydrated and energized throughout the scavenger hunt by keeping a bottle of Del Monte Fit 'n Right in tow.

Use Your Imagination
Take yourselves back to when you were little children playing in the neighborhood park or your grade school field. Remember how even without toys or an organized sports game you always found ways to keep yourselves entertained? Put your imagination into use and create games of your own making up rules as you go! Think of interesting places to explore. Stay away from the usual hangouts. Try making challenges for each other in the backyard or even the kitchen! Compete to build something new create an unconventional recipe with Del Monte Spaghetti Sauce like Cheesy Chicken Meatball Spaghetti or simply make variations to old games you used to play as kids. Who knows, these original games may become a barkada tradition!
