Summer-time Boredom Busters


My daughter has been out of school (pre-school) for two weeks.  And I love her to death, and I love spending extra time with her, but I can already tell that she is getting a little bored and in DESPERATE need of some Boredom Busters!

We have had multiple conversations that begin something like this, “Why can’t I go to preschool in the summer?” or “How long until kindergarten starts?”

Did I mention she has only been out of school for 2 weeks?!

So in an effort to keep things fun, exciting and hopefully less boring, I wanted to share a few Boredom Buster Kid Ideas that should help keep the kids happy and engaged all summer long!

Great Summer time Boredom Busters for kids! A full list of great stuff!

So enjoy your summers.  Enjoy the extra time you get to spend with your children.  And keep things a bit fun and exciting by introducing a few fun new summer activities!  (And hopefully you won’t hear “I’m booooooored” quite as often!)

What is your favorite summer-time activity to do with the kids / family?

    Ashley – I feel your pain. My big kids are in year round school and my littlest is in preschool. He's home all summer without his siblings. He's going stir-crazy. I love the ideas in this post. I thank you for helping me keep my sanity this week! 🙂
