I’M BORED! Part One
Running out of summer holiday inspiration? Here’s a handful of ideas, starting with indoor play…
They’ve trashed the living room, left a trail of toys all over the garden, eaten you out of house and home, started fight number 232 and the iPad is down to 7%. And it’s only 10am. And it looks like it’s about to rain. In August. SUMMER HOLIDAYS ARE HERE! So you need some entertainment plans and you need them fast.
Maybe the weather isn’t playing ball or perhaps you need to get them out of the sun for a bit of down-time after a hectic play date outdoors. Even summer holidays require some quiet, busy play from time to time, so we have six ideas to keep them from NERFing the cat.
Unleash their inner scientist and bring creations to life by adding light and sound.
Let them loose with the decorating pens! They don’t even have to get dressed, just wake up, start scribbling and you’ve won yourself an hour of peace.
The ultimate ‘busy hands’ activity, popular with both boys and girls. Creative, mindful, quiet. Bliss.
Perfectly sized for little hands, there’s even a gingerbread man recipe on Hedgehog’s website to get them started.
Just six pre-cut pieces, no glue or scissors, an activity sheet inside and wings that flap. Zero Mummy help. Bonus.
Filled with ideas for creating anything from a vase of flowers to a T-Rex with an inkpad of colours attached. Paints and brushes not required. Wet wipes, though, pretty essential… #HopeYouLikePrintsOnYourWalls

We love to review toys for Busy Bird - but sometimes the best review is just watching a child open the toy and play with it, that way you get their honest reaction. And this is just what happened when we were asked to be part of an 'unboxing' for goodtoknow.co.uk recently. Let's just say Wet Head is no fun when it's Mummy's head getting wet...
