Summer holidays, you either love them or hate them. I am never sure about which camp I am in. I love spending time with the children but do worry about the cost of summer activities. I relish not having to get up each morning and giving up the school routine, but I don’t like hearing the words “I’m Bored” That is why I came up with the bored jar (about four years ago).
We are deep in the middle of the fidget spinner craze here and both of my boys have a number of different fidget spinners. However, this post has been totally inspired by Sarah from Frugal Fun for Boys and Girls DIY LEGO Fidget Spinner. The boys came home from school and spend 20 minutes on the Ipad whilst I prepared some snacks and then the next three hours engineering their own DIY LEGO Fidget Spinners.
Have your kids joined the fidget spinner or fidget toy craze yet? If they have then they will love this post with great DIY fidget spinners for you to make. I have long had a love for fidget toys, especially as Mini is on the spectrum and they are really great at helping keep him calm and also help hm concentrate better. So I have no issue with the new craze for all things fidget. In fact, we have found them a sanity saver in the Mad House.
Butterfly rain art is a wonderful process art activity perfect for rainy days, alternatively, you can use a spray bottle of water to get the same reaction. We thought that there was something magical watching the rain fall and change and mix our butterfly’s colours.
