Over 101 Ideas for Summer Activities for Teenagers 2

Over 101 Ideas for Summer Activities for Teenagers is a paid collaboration with Goodfella’s Romano Pizza. As my boys are getting older I am finding that keeping them entertained over the summer is getting more expensive and it appears that I am not alone in finding it pricey,  A study by Goodfella’s Pizza discovered that during the six weeks summer holiday parents spend an average of £127 a child to stop their offspring becoming bored.  “I’m Bored” is one of the phrases that I have banned here, in fact over the years I have used it to my advantage with our Bored Jars.  So I have partnered up with Goodfellas and their Romano Pizza to share with you over 101 ideas for summer activities for teenagers perfect for a bored jar.

101 Activities for Teenagers Perfect for Summer

As with all our bored jars, there is a sting in the tail for teens if they need to use it and utter the dreaded words “I am bored”, they risk picking out a chore which they have to do before picking out another activity.  The majority of the activities are low cost or even no cost.  Over the years the boys have got used to keeping themselves occupied on a small budget which means that I spend much less than the average person according to the Goodfella Pizza research.  It also means that I can splash out on a summer trip to the water park or even a theme park for all the family.

Goodfella’s Romano Pizza Review

Another way that I save money over the summer is by encouraging the boys to cook meals and making family meals at home a regular thing.  It saves us lots of money on eating out.  We are big fans of pizza and movie nights (even more so now we have a projector) and the boys are something of pizza experts.   The Romano Pizza range is a premium (and tasty) range of premium frozen pizza with a stonebaked base and fab toppings which cost around £2.50 and if you consider that the report said that parents spend around £609 on meals out, then you can make a huge saving by just being prepared and having some pizza in the freezer.

Mini likes his pizza classic and simple and he loved the four cheese and basil pesto pizza.  I think that simple pizzas are often the hardest to get right and this one was a big hit.  There was too much cheese and the cherry tomato didn’t make the topping too moist which can sometimes be Mini’s issue. The other vegetarian option, chargrilled vegetable and pesto pizza was delicious and full of taste too.

We really enjoyed all the pizzas (yes we ate them al fresco thanks to the fab weather recently) but had a few that real favourites.  MadDad really enjoyed the chicken, roquito pepper and red onion. This pizza had all of his favourite topping on and was really tasty without being too fancy and overpowering.

My favourite was the Calabrese salami and spicy ‘nduja sausage, topped with a chilli and black pepper flake pizza, it was tasty with a bit of a kick but not overtopped which I find a lot of pizza’s to be. Whereas Maxi’s favourite was the pepperoni and chorizo.
