Summer Boredom Busters for Kids

“Mom! I’m BORED!” I’m not sure if there are words that make a Mom cringe more than “I’m bored.” Because as much as we look forward to summer and all that it entails (no homework, relaxing together as a family, making memories, long summer nights), I’m bored leads to fighting, crying and a slight yearning for school. And that’s usually by the second day, ha! But not to worry! As a pre-summer treat, we’ve come up with over 30 ideas to keep your kiddos entertained this summer. With so much fun stuff to try, your kiddos won’t have time to be bored. And you won’t lose your sanity the first day!

I'm Vanessa and it's my mission in life to spread my love of hot glue guns and glitter to others. I suffer from craft ADHD, regularly working on at least 10 projects at the same time and my craft room looks like a tornado hit it. My first craft book, Party in a Jar, was published in 2014. I look forward to crafting with you!
