100+ Summer Boredom Buster Ideas for Kids
It’s officially the middle of the summer in my neck of the woods, and I’ve heard a lot of parents complaining that their kids need to go back to school. I’m not sure if it’s because the kids are fighting, bored, or just ornery, but my kids are driving me nuts too. That means it’s time to get creative and find fun things for them to do to occupy the last few weeks of summer vacation. That’s why we’ve put this list of fun art projects, outdoor activities, cooking, and other learning endeavors you can do with your kids. Hopefully, this list will help you find fun things to do for the rest of the summer with your kids, no matter their age.
Art projects are a lot of fun when the weather is warm and you can kick the kids outside to get messy and creative. If you’d also like indoor art projects, though, we’ve got you covered there too!
