Are They Bored Yet?Danielle
Originally I was going to keep them in summer camp to help eliminate this, but I thought to myself … anything they can do in summer camp, I can totally do myself at home with the help of Pinterest.
Which has been true, but even with all the projects and their favorite daily activities, I am on the verge of a mutiny.
In yet another desperate attempt not to be overthrown by small children before my husband is home from work, I put together some more activities I think the kids would love. Some we have done, and some are on our to-do list for the upcoming week/weeks before school goes back. Unlike most, our kids don’t head back to pre-school till September.
These are some of my favorite projects; if you have one you would like to include, be sure to leave a comment below!
Can Stilts 1 of 8What is more fun than your toddler learning how to walk on hand-made stilts? If your toddler is anything like mine, once they can walk, they want to walk with anything on their feet, even if it doesn't belong there!

Ice Cube Boats 4 of 8Another awesome keeping cool activity. All you need is a bowl of water, some plastic cups, and straws and you have a fun activity that can be as simple as playing in a water table, or bringing them into a kiddie pool. Either way I am willing to bet your toddlers will love it!

Scavenger Hunt 7 of 8This is a genius idea for a fun outdoor activity! Take an old egg carton and make a scavenger hunt of nature related things you can find in your own yard! You can also make this an indoor project for rainy days too!

Excavating Objects 8 of 8This is a great idea if your kids love to break things like mine do. LOL! Freeze some neat objects in ice and then let them excavate them!
