Most Boring Things to Do In Your Spare Time

The Top Ten
1 Homework

This is so true like whenever I am bored and go and tell my parents and they just say go and do your homework if you got some and I am like what? its like I just said I have nothing to do and your gonna tell me to do homework seriously. I wanna do something fun which is not homework, homework ruins my life unless its something fun to do like drawing a poster or something else like that!

Homework- So called "practice" because teachers have no clue that people have lives so they give us unnecessary work to do at a place that is supposed to make us feel safe and comfortable but instead it magically becomes school because the awfulness of homework is there to ruin your day and your life.

Homework is awful. What is the point of going to school if you have to do homework? So basically it's not just a few hours wasted at school. No. It's the ENTIRE DAY because HOMEWORK is there to ruin your life. People commit suicide over homework and I can see why.

I know that homework is just practice for what you learned in school but it's still sucks. We can't just do homework in class? Are the lessons that long (and boring)? Instead of a few hours wasted, the entire day is wasted because of homework.

2 Watch grass grow

Seriously? Is it that hard to understand? It's worse than watching a teacher write about the quadratic formula. Seriously.

Staring is the most boring thing to do like all the others.

Watching grass grow o no that's the most boring thing to do

That's stupid are you serious that will take all day duh

3 Stare at a TV that's not on

Yep super boring sometimes when I'm grounded, I'll just stare at the T.V. thinking time will pass, but nope 5 seconds later I'm so bored I go and find something else to do

"Stare at a T.V. that's not on" What a waste of time, doing something so boring. Tedious. Monotonous and mundane.
I think Id rather do knitting. (And I'm not 80 I'm 20)

Sometimes I do this, but I create shows in my head and imagine them on the screen.

Better than sitting through any Channel 10 network and its ads.

4 Watch golf

My grandpa always watched golf on T.V. and it's awful like I used to play golf but got terribly bored of it. It's even worse that you're sitting out in the hot sun.

Doing golf is worse than watching it. It takes 15 minutes to finish one hole. And that's if you're lucky.

It's so unlikely to watch that you'll expect to see a king reading a comic sitting on your tea table

I can't stand golf. Whats the point of it anyway? Put a ball in a hole?

5 Nothing

Nothing is more boring than doing nothing, especially at school! When the teacher has nothing for you to do in school and you have not very much friends it's hard to stay entertained. Being productive gets your mind off of useless things.

Whenever I'm out of school for the summer, I usually just stay in my house all day and only watch T.V. for most of my spare time. It's so boring. I wish I could be with my friends more often.

I know what it's like doing nothing. You sit there and "what can I do? " and this goes on usually in the afternoon on a Sunday for me

My parents sometimes make me go in my room and stare at the wall. It's so boring. They won't even let me go to sleep.

6 Read

I used to hate reading. Every second of it. But when my mom got annoyed by it, she forced me to the library to get a book. I got the Hunger games, because why not? I saw the movie, so I'd read the book. After I read the book, I wanted to read another. You need to read anything. If you couldn't, you wouldn't be reading this comment, reading all the comments on this list, or anything.

I voted this to say: SHUT UP! Not everyone likes reading, but reading can really bring you to a whole new level place. I believe that everyone has a book that is designed for them. Choose a book that you want, and that suits you. Visit your local library.

Reading is not boring it help you learn when you grow up you can fer a job have a fast car why do you don't like reading your mom love tou and you got to love her back if you be good in school you can get anything you want bro don't read you going to read 2 grand good for you I have lyck so yeah.And do your work I do it

In the past several years, I have only read a book (excluding fanfiction or like Wattpad stories) once, even if it was off of a computer. But then again it was probably one of my favorite books I've read.

7 Watch paint dry

Just do something else! Go play instead of watching your walls dry!

I'd rather watch paint dry.

Seriously? It is so boring

That is some thing boring thanks for edvice

8 Go to school

School is pain, I get bored every time over there especially the subject reading, except recess and lunch!

I'm at school right now! I'm in Tech Class and my flippin' project is to pick something boring and teach it. ()

Yeah I'm at school right now, and I'm so bored I just looked up boring stuff

Do nothing till recess Any one go to burnt mills elementary school

9 Watch Barney

Barney has the most wretched voice you could think of. This show also teaches kids offensive language. I have never met a kid who liked this show.

Laugh out loud, some 7 year old who just got over watching this and has a younger sibling must've put this on here. My 4 year old loves this show.

I hate barney he just sings and tells kids about stuff that they already know totally boring

Ugh! I hate Barney that purple dinosaur is just pointless and so stupid

10 Watch Dora the Explorer

Dora is pathetic! I am glad they cancelled it! She is deaf and had a talking map! Dora is a football head and I give her 3 word and they are, stupid, StuPiD, STUPID!

Dora is for babies. I am posed to be sleep now but can't though

Dora is my spirit animal... Or squidward... I don't know

The show is so obvious it gets on my nerves!

The Contenders
11 Think of another item to put on a most boring things to do in your spare time list

That's not boring that's dumb

Ok, that's just plain stupid.

This made me slap myself

I did this but I was zo bored I fell asleep

12 Stare at the wall

I remember one day we had an electricity cut in our area.. and all of the things T.V. ac comp were switched off.. Aftersome time my phone's battery was also almost over. So I had Nthng to do except staring the wall... laugh out loud :-p

Do it during class much more interesting then watching 28 minute video about personification

It makes me hit my head of the wall if I'm bored staring at it laugh out loud

I HATE staring at the wall! I mostly do it when I am in trouble!

13 Read boring lists online

Ironically, this is the most boring on the list, in my opinion. It is my assertion that the ones who came here for a satirical outlook on the lack entertainment, are the ones most inclined to be entertained. However, said people will be, most likely, bored as well in just reading this list.

The people who made this list...COMMON SENSE! We didn't come to this stupid site for this stupid stuff.we are just wasting our time guys

I'm only doing this to get my little brother to go away.

So boring I would rather watch the floor erode

14 Talk to your imaginary friend

I use to always talk to my imaginary friend when I was younger. I never felt bad about it, I was kind of proud, but then again, I was oblivious that it was stupid to do when I was younger.

AARRGG! There is no point to it! People will think you are
Crazy because it is the first sign of stupidity!

I do that all the time when I was little. Couldn't help it, I was all alone

Also, I looks like your talking to thin air.

15 Read a random Wikipedia page

That isn't boring

So just uncool

16 Watch the History Channel

It's so boring! When I'm really bored I watch Nat Geo Wild, History Channel, BBC Earth and stuff...

Some of their documentaries & conspiracies can be low key interesting.

The nerdiest kids would probably consider this their "cartoons"

So boring! Only nerdy kids and old people watch History Channel.

17 Listen to Justin Bieber

One, he's not dead
Two, I agree that listening to Justin Beiber is so boring.
Three, he's my least favorite singer

Baby, baby, baby, oh! Who on earth would want to listen to that weird gangsters stupid songs?

I can listen to him and stare at his face for more then two hours so shut your mouthhole

These things are very boring

18 Go shopping

Depends on what you are shopping for. Shopping for CLOTHES is the most boring thing EVER! I may as well stair at a wall.

I hate shopping but my family loves if

These are boring


19 Attend younger sibling's performance

it is just about the most boring thing ever getting dragged along to a younger siblings performance while I could be doing something else... Especially as most of the performances are completely rubbish

I would only ever watch my stupid brother play rugby if he broke something. I would not want to miss that. It would be the only sport-related thing worth watching.

That's nice doing that your mean who ever wrote that that's really mean

My little brother sometimes has karate performances in front of me

20 Sleep

For some reason a night I don't want to sleep but when I do sleep and my parent wake me up I always don't want to wake up so I'm usually late to school. It's a normal thing for me.

Love sleeping.
It ain't boring
I love to sleep because your dreams feel so real. You get to encounter all of your wishes and dreams in your dreams.

The only boring part about sleep is trying to fall asleep. Otherwise sleep is heaven

Sleeping is awesome and naps everybody needs their beauty sleep

21 Ride in an airplane without TV or electronic devices

This is why I bring my ipad, but even my mom wouldn't even let me use it the whole ride, so my only other option is to sleep.

Just look out the window.

I wouldn't survive unless it was a 10mins flight


22 Read this list

Well I am and I'd rather do anything

That's exactly right I'm bored (why? )

This should be the top 1!

I agree.

23 Lay face down on your bed

Feels weird plus, it's boring!

The slight suffocation doesn't really help either


24 Listen to your parents talk about something you don't care about at all

Every time I try to ignore my mom she asks me a question and if I don't answer she know I wasn't listening!

true, its boring

They ramble on and on! SERIOUSLY WE DON'T CARE!

25 Golf

What could be more boring than taking 15 minutes (if you're lucky) to do one hole out of 9? Or 18?

At least video games have reading.

I. Hate. Golf. my dad makes me do it all the time for some reason

Golf is so boring asses

True so true
