Hope you’re having a great day so far! As you may know, summer is officially here and kids everywhere are out of school. I’ve rounded up some of our FAVORITE Summer Boredom Busters on Amazon, and I can’t wait to share them with you today! These are items we’ve tried and items we love, and I hope that shopping this list gives you some sanity and time to actually enjoy a cup of coffee while the kids play, you deserve it!
Summer Boredom Busters on Amazon:
- Melissa and Doug Water Wow Books – here’s why I love these books. They’re inexpensive, reusable, and fun! Just fill the pen with water, give it to your kiddo, and let them color with the water as the image changes color. It’s not messy, something that’s easy for them to do on their own – and it will give you enough time to drink that cold cup of coffee that’s sitting on the counter, seriously.
- See & Spell Wooden Puzzle – I love these puzzles and so do my kiddos. They can practice spelling different words, have a visual, and I don’t have to worry about the pieces breaking because they’re so sturdy!
- Alphabet Nesting and Stacking Blocks – Your kids will LOVE stacking these blocks and you’ll love that they can nest into each other for easy and space-saving storage!
- Play-Doh & Play-Doh Kits – We absolutely love Play-Dog kits because they’re inexpensive and open up a world of creativity for kids.
- Water Balloons – we love these easy fill water balloons. They’re so quick (perfect for impatient little ones) and you can use them in so many ways!
- Water Beads – I’ll scream it from the rooftop and I don’t care who hears me. I LOVE WATER BEADS! These are so great for sensory bins – you can freeze them, make them as-is, put them inside water balloons (this is a great kids activity), or just give your kids a big tub of them to play in! A little goes a long way, so the package will last forever, too!
- Little Tikes Jump ‘n Slide Bouncer – this thing is so amazing. You can use it indoors or outdoors, and it will give your kids HOURS of entertainment. We use ours almost daily and compared to a lot of other brands, this is the most budget-friendly.
- Step2 Rain Showers Splash Pond Water Table – Out of all of the water tables we’ve tried (and believe me, we’ve tried a lot), this one is our favorite. I love the rain shower feature (pouring water onto the upper level) and it comes with everything you need for hours of play! No need to purchase everything separately.
- Step2 All Around Playtime Patio with Canopy – We have been LOVING this lately. It’s big enough for both boys to play in, and that canopy protects them from the sun. It has a play grill, water area, sand area, and more! So versatile and perfect for families who don’t have a ton of space, but want to incorporate all of these things into their yard.
- 10 Foot Long Inflatable Kiddie Pool – We bought this pool and have been using it for the past few months. I bought it because it was under $40 and something our whole family could use. It’s perfect for moms and dads who want to sit in the cool water while their kiddos are splashing around, and it’s got a plug at the bottom of the pool that makes draining it a breeze. Plus there is a cover that you can buy to keep leaves, dirt, and debris out.
- Sidewalk Chalk – whether you’re having your kiddos practice their writing, coloring, or even making a fun chalk race track, you’ll want to stock up on chalk!
- H20 GO! Fun Sketching Art Blobz Spraying Splash Mat – this item is under $30, easy to fill with water, and has a sprinkler spray function so kiddos can use it to cool off. Or you can turn off the sprinkler and let your kiddos color on it with the provided crayons! Super cool!
- Bug Flashlight with Easy Grip – these flashlights are so cute, right? We’ve been teaching the boys how to do shadow puppets and these work perfectly for little hands!
- Melissa & Doug Sunny Patch Dilly Dally Racquet and Ball Game Set – these check the boxes of both adorable & affordable.
- Green Toys Trucks & Boats – we LOVE these toys! The boys have several of the trucks and boats and the quality and durability is just awesome! They’re easy to clean and great for playing outside at the beach in the sand, or in the back yard in the dirt!
