July 3, 2019

School is out here in NC and we are celebrating our first full days of summer.

Each year I see social media boards overflow with things Mom's asking what to do to keep the little ones busy,  I know it can be stressful and expensive. 

These tips are budget-friendly and fun.

Get out of the house or stay in the house, the main thing is to Have Fun!!


25 Cures for "I'm Bored"

1. Go on a picnic

2. Go Camping(My fav)Even if it is in your front yard

3. Have a movie day at home. Lay out blankets on the floor and make Popcorn

4. Have a Yard Sale or donate some old toys to charity

5. Paint rocks

6. Go to a street fair or to an outdoor concert

22. Go Tubing. Here is our favorite place to visit for a relaxing day on the river.

23. Make a slip and slide with some plastic and the water hose. Don't worry about the grass it will grow back.

24. Visit a local landmark that tourist come to your town to see. Explore where you live.
25. Book a hotel a few towns over from yours and stay the night. Take the long way of getting there. Kids really don't care as long as it has a pool and something fun to do. They might want to skip that 12 hour car ride anyway.

Happy Summer!
