School is out for Summer! 

Kids live for the long summer holidays, what about us parents, are you excited for the summer holidays? I love the summer holidays with my kids, but we do have the occasional day where we need a little inspiration to keep our little darlings sane and beat the dreaded Boredom.

Why not make your own boredom buster jar, that way when the kids are bored, or you may be looking for some holiday activities, activity inspiration you can reach into your jar and instantly have something for everyone to do!

How to make your boredom buster jar.

Choose a decent-sized Masson jar you can decorate your jar anyway you wish, paint it, use stickers. When you’re happy with how it looks, you then need to create a label for the front of your jar.

For this, you can use your child’s Name or family Name Bordem Buster Activities.

Next, you need either Coloured paper or card and cut it into strips and write an activity on each piece and place it in the jar.
