How many times have you heard the words 'I'm bored' so far this Summer?

If you can only count the number of times of one hand, then count yourself lucky. If you've heard them too many times already, you're not alone.

Here are three cool things that might just help to keep your kids busy (rather than bored) this Summer...

When all else fails, make a bored jar using any jar or container that you have in the house. You can either use your own activity list to cut up and put in the jar; or print a Summer activity list (with over 150 activities) from Mum In the Mad House.
