“I’m bored” said with whine…I hate those two words together. Seriously, are they really bored? They have five gazillion books they could read, a Nintendo DS with more games than I care to admit, DVDs of every kid movie out there, yet they are bored. After hearing that way too many times, I decided to step back and try to find some cool, fun – maybe even a little bit educational (wink, wink) things that I could do with the boys. Here’s what I came up with:
Green Craft Kids – I love these boxes filled with crafts! What better way to get ideas of things to do than to have it shipped to your front door! You know I am a lover of all types of subscription boxes…this one included. Oh, and this summer (until August 31st) they are offering 20% off of their single Discovery Boxes and Craft Kits. (They make great gifts too!) There are boxes for as little as $5.95 (then 20% off) – you can make butterfly wings; there is a weather station one (definitely getting that for the boys); a music themed one. Go check them out HERE.
I wasn’t afraid of hooking the live bait, loved being outdoors and hanging with my dad. My boys went fishing with my dad and I once. G spent most of his time running in circles around a tree, but N – he stuck it out and caught his first fish!!
Last Sunday my parents took the boys to the sporting goods store and picked up some fishing gear – I can’t wait for the boys to create the same great fishing memories that I have with my dad!
Little Passports! I have a bunch of unopened states and countries that have been waiting for me! Ever since we started hardcore packing, and then moving, and then unpacking I haven’t had the time to actually explore. Now we can!
I’m starting with the five above and as I find cool things to do, I will be sure to share with you! What do you do with the kids for fun?
