Growing up, my sister & I loved the holidays when we got our craft on and enjoyed making things. So much so, this has followed us into adulthood, when we even took a class making our own Christmas decorations once. (sad & nerdy... but true).
Now being a full-time stay at home mumma with two young boys, you would think I could let my creative juices flow. Yet my love of craft may have skipped a generation or their lack of attention span hasn't enabled it. My friends always comment that being at home doesn't have to be like the 'Playschool' show, as most activities I choose to do, usually end up in tears (from me!). The effort definitely doesn't outweigh the outcome.
Having said this I do still persevere and have these craft light bulb moments when I read another blog, that yeah we can do that and the boys will love it!!! I'm obviously a slow learner. However, there are a few tried & tested activities, that the kids do ask for and since school holidays are upon us, I compiled a Free Download for you to check out.
They are fairly easy, low prep & hopefully most items you will have lying around. I've also compiled a list of activities, screen free ones, that your babes can do when they come saying "I'm Bored!"
Hope some of these activities keeps them entertained for a little while so you can enjoy a cuppa in peace for at least 10 minutes.
