Boredom Busters: 5 Games Kids can Play Indoors!Liz Cerezo
We are right smack in the middle of summer in Southern California, and the heat combined with 3 bored kids is driving me insane!
I personally am not a fan of the hot weather. All in all, I can’t stand hot weather. We’ve been in the high 90s to low 100s in temperature, and when we can’t make it out to the pool, we are keeping cool with the love of my life, the AC.
Still, I have 3 kids who are looking for entertainment. Keeping them cooped up in the cool indoors is great but it can be limiting in what they do. We’ve already had one Spanish language immersion day at home, so here are 5 entertaining, boredom busting, Latin-themed games kids can play indoors!
Let’s get indoors and play! 1 of 6
If the temperature is rising, no need to panic! Keep the kids entertained with these fun activities!
