Yep, it’s soon going to be that time of year again the dreaded end of summer break. Ours has just started, but it doesn’t hurt to be prepared right!? During the end of summer break the ball games are winding down to a complete halt, splash parks are getting old and finally after making 4,657 types of slime the kiddos are getting bored. And us parents are pulling our hair out, per all the whining happening!
The once exciting summer activities for kids, like riding bikes, drawing chalk cities in the driveway, and playing tag in the backyard are soooo last month.
Even if you have something really cool in your backyard like, I don’t know, a 15 foot high playset (yep have one) or even something cooler like a pool you are still not safe!
Cause kids, well they are kids and everything, I mean everything gets old to them.
The kiddos are restless and tired of the same ol’ same ol’! Make slime, repeat, make slime repeat! Ugh!
Anyone with me?
They are bored inside. They are bored outside. They are bored when kids come to play. They seem to be bored all day.
The end of summer break I usually hear ”there is nothing to do” and “moooooom I’m bored” all.the.time. and I really truly simply cannot take it anymore. If one more kid tells me they are bored I might just lose it lol.
So to break the monotony and stop the never ending whining I did what any crazed, and exhausted mom would do, I searched Pinterest! I found a lot of unique and fun summer activities for kids. Here are my favorite finds that I thought were worth sharing with you all!
