10 Boredom Busting Kids Activities

10 Boredom Busting Kids Activities

Kids Activity Ideas To Bust Your Kid’s Boredom

Although I don’t have a school aged child of my own, I feel the pain of some parents as school holidays near as they wonder how on earth they are going to entertain their children on a budget. So, I thought I might try to make life a little easier for you by doing a kids activities roundup. I’ve compiled a list of activities suitable for toddlers and school aged kids. Don’t forget to pin it for later and share with your other parent friends! These activities are perfect for playgroups too.

    What gorgeous activities for kids! I particularly like the paper plate birds. My kids are all grown up now but my sister is a day care mum so I will send her the link to this as she is always looking for new ideas 🙂
