Spring Break Boredom Busters!

Spring Break started this week, and I have already heard those dreaded words, I’m BORED. Well not this year guys. I have planned to have play-dates every day of the week. Right now my kids are in the backyard with friends. I even checked out a few ideas for how to keep the boredom at bay.

The Dating Divas have a long list of Boredom Busters that every parent should have this spring break. Whether your kids are in to art, outdoor play, or indoor play, the list has something for EVERYONE. I am hoping that by having a friend over every day and implementing some of these boredom busters we will eliminate that dreaded phrase all week long.

We started out our week with some outdoor fun. Since the west coast has some gnarly storms coming in midweek we are taking advantage of some decent weather while we can. Currently my kids are all outside in the middle of scavenger hunt. We even got out our dress up kit and they are all decked out as pirates while they look for treasure. Instant fun! Be sure to check out the 60+ Boredom Busting ideas listed at The Dating Divas. You will definitely be glad you did!

Fun activity for the End of Winter

The weather is already starting to change on the west coast, but for those of you still stomping through snow and waiting out warmer weather we have a fun activity to keep those boys happy indoors. Bubble wrap has captivated people for decades. It is endless fun sitting and popping those little bubbles one by one. Well how about doing it more than one by one?

This fun activity will let your boys tape bubble wrap to the floor and slide, dance, jump, and run all over it. They will just best with excitement! (Sorry we had to!) Make races, competitions, and see who can bust the most bubbles. Everyone will want to get in on the fun! fun activity for the end of winter

Alphabet Treasure Hunt

As Moms we are always looking for some fun activities to keep our boys busy during the summer, but what we love even more is when those activities are educational. It is incredible to see our boys out having fun while learning something new, especially if they don’t even realize they are learning. This month we want to highlight an incredibly fun activity that can take place indoors or outdoors during the summer break, let your kids have an Alphabet Treasure Hunt.

We scouted the world of boy blogs this month and found a great new gem of boy blog, Boys Germs. Boys Germs is a blog created and run by Mom of three boys, Alana. Boys Germs features great style ideas, activities, and other great boy themed fun. So make sure you check out Boys Germs for some great ideas for you and your boys!

An Alphabet Treasure Hunt is fun and simple. Lt your boys look all over the house and yard for items, toys, clothes, colors, or objects that begin with each letter in the alphabet. Make a collection spot for each letter. You can use magnetic letters, paper letters, or even draw the alphabet on the driveway with chalk. Let your kids bring a new item for each letter and place it under its corresponding letter. The possibilities are endless.

A= apple, art
B= bubbles, bag
C= candle, coppertone sunblock

You and your kids will be busy for hours finding all sorts of different objects. With each object your kids will learn more about spelling, and letter/word recognition. Each time you play the game a different object can be found, it is an ever-changing and evolving game. Now talk about a good time! So go ahead and give an Alphabet Treasure Hunt a try and see how much fun it can be, and don’t forget to check out Boys Germs for other great ideas.
