Hey Mamas…this post is for you! We are a couple of weeks into summer at our house. I love summer time…but the days can be long. My kids are always wanting activities…and needing ideas of what to do! Especially in the afternoon after chores, errands, and reading.
Today I’m sharing some awesome boredom busters to make any mom a “super hero” this summer! 40 Indoor and Outdoor Boredom Buster ideas..in our Boredom Buster Jars! The kids can never say they are bored again! And a tip…Popsicles! That helps us get through each day with happy kids…and a happy mom.
We use popsicles for rewards…and for fun playtime outside. It’s a nice break between activities, to just sit in the shade with a yummy cool treat.
To make these Boredom Buster Idea Jars, save the popsicle sticks and follow the instructions below:)
You will need for the Boredom Buster Jars:
-Popsicle sticks (you can paint the ones from popsicles, or found already painted sticks at a craft store)
-Thin point black sharpie marker
-2 mason jars
-2 tags…One that says “indoor boredom busters” and one that says “outdoor boredom busters”
-The list of ideas below…or you can generate ideas with your kids:)
On the sticks, write ideas with the thin black sharpie marker. Attach the labeled tags to the jars…and you are set! So easy and simple and will help kids and moms all summer long!
When the kids are bored, have them grab a boredom buster idea! Outside or Inside…you choose. All of these ideas are easy and inexpensive! And so much fun!
I’m sharing our list of ideas for indoor and outdoor boredom busters. You can use these activities or choose ideas with your kids depending on ages, ability, etc.
