Win Sainsbury’s bumper book of summer and bumper scrapbook #boredombusting

*Winner is Clare D

Sainsbury’s bumper book of summer is really rather fab!  It is jam packed with ideas for having fun in the school summer holidays without blowing your budget. The ideas for activities use imagination, the world around you and a willingness to play.

With the book there’s a DVD packed with step-by-step guides, a wall poster to plan your activities, over 100 stickers and a scrapbook for the kids to capture their summer of fun. How awesome is that . And it only cost £5!

We have loved our copy so much and my six year old has been happily filling her scrapbook with a record of the activities she has done. Our favourite so far are pond dipping and potion making.

    Go geocaching – find a local walk you like on http://www.geocaching.com and follow the gps directions to hunt out the “treasure”. There’s lots to chat about on these adventures.

    Our kids love making ‘rock bands’. They go on the hunt for various stones, then we wash them and paint them with my old nail varnishes and stick googly eyes on and various bits and pieces for the instruments.

    Take the children down to the beach, hunt through the to pools for crabs, sea anenomes, fish, shells. Then skim stones into the sea, do a bit of beach combing, fly a kite, bury mum and dad in the sand. Great activities, free, and ideal for making,long lasting summer memories.

    There’s a summer fitness challenge at our sports centre my daughter is keen on. It gets her out exercising for ages.

    Gather together all your old sheets and blankets and make a den in the garden with a bell at the front door which all grown ups have to ring before entering. Equip with a hamper of goodies including snacks, arts and crafts stuff etc and an entire afternoon will pass unnoticed.

    My best idea is to create a treasure hunt, you can plant clues around your home garden or village leading to further clues and then a prize at the end. It’s brilliant fun for all ages

    Found a fab idea online for a Bored Jar – basically you write lots of fun and not so fun things on slips of paper and pop them in a jar. Whenever your child says ‘I’m bored!’ get them to pick something out – it could be fun like ‘Bake a cake’ or not so fun like ‘Tidy your room’. My girls love it 🙂

    As our Summers tend to consist of lots of rain, we do lots of arts & crafts. Our latest favourite was when we made cars to sit in out of cardboard boxes & paper plates and painted them. We put Disney Cars and Disney Cars 2 on the TV, bought some popcorn and drinks and had our very own drive-in cinema!

    We’ve just made Coconut Ice sweets – it was really good fun! A few ingredients and lots of squishing and mixing with hands is always a winner with my little boy.
