4 Easy Boredom Busters!

Summertime is great and all…but let’s face the facts. The kids are home ALLLLLL day. Not only does it wear me out, but they run out of activities! In our house, we have come up with a few activities that are age-appropriate and keep the mind sharp while they are on break from school.


Carwash (toy cars)

This will teach them the importance of taking care of your belongings and the value of things.


Pre-school Aged Children

Backyard picnic

Have them pick out different foods to eat: ham, cheese, carrots. Then cut into bite-sized pieces and have a fun conversation while enjoying the great outdoors.


School-Aged Children

Nature hike/scavenger hunt around the neighborhood

1. Look for shapes in houses (triangles, circles, squares)

2. Look for different leaves (maple, oak, beech)

3. Look for types of bugs (ants, bees, spiders)

-cars (car, truck, etc.)
