I always have great intentions of doing fun, new things multiple times a week but as soon as summer hits my brain goes blank. I decided now was the perfect time to put together a list of summer boredom busters. A lot of these activities don’t cost a thing! I’ve included a printable list, easy to skim over and quickly choose an activity or printable cards, throw them in a box and draw out an activity.
As a super fun added idea, take pictures of all your summer fun activities and make a summer scrapbook!

It’s sad but true. Which brings me to today’s post and my chance at redemption and the chance to end the summer time boredom. Continue reading
