DIY Boredom Busters and Kid Activities

I don’t know about you, but we’re getting to that point in the summer where the novelty of being out of school is starting to wear off.  The kids are beginning to complain more and more that they’re bored, so I put together a collection of 16 DIY Boredom Busters to keep your kids engaged and help save your sanity until school starts up again.

Polly here from Pieces by Polly as your host for this week.

I’ve been playing along with Marissa at Rae Gun Ramblings during her Happy Harry Potter Series and have posted several fun projects and giveaways, both Potter-themed and otherwise.  Check out my blog for these recent activities:
