Beat Boredom Month With Dollar General

This post brought to you by Dollar General. All opinions are 100% mine.

“Mom!  I’m bored!!!!”  How many times have you heard that so far his summer?

It never fails – the kids get out of school in early to mid June and for the first few weeks, everything is great.  They are outside playing with their friends, attending camps, etc.  Maybe he family takes a vacation or does some fun outside activities before it starts getting too hot.  Everyone is having fun and is happy.

But somewhere around the time that the last firework goes off on the 4th of July, they seem to run out of things to do.  Or maybe you have a string of rainy days and they are stuck inside. Inevitably, they will come to you with a “Mooooom!  I don’t have anything to do!”.

While my first instinct is always to tell them to clean their room, I do like to keep things in the house to counteract the inevitable boredom. Luckily I have a Dollar General near me so that I can keep do just that and take advantage of some of the summer savings in an effort to beat Boredom Month.

Here are a few ideas for some products that you can keep on hand to help combat the inevitable whining:

Craft kits:  Dollar General has a nice selection of craft and science kits.  This bracelet kit came in handy just the other day with my daughter and her friends.  Kept them busy for a few hour (and they even figured out how to make them in to necklaces!)

Puzzles:  We found a large selection of 500-piece puzzles, all priced at just $1! My children love doing puzzles and a 500-piece one will keep all 3 of them busy (and playing together nicely) for a while. They generally don’t like doing the same one more than once, but when they are only $1, I can afford to keep a bunch of them on hand so there is always something new for them!

Water play:  get the kids outside and playing (and exercising) with the large selection of water guns and toys. My children loved this water balloon pumper because they could quickly and easily fill up their own water balloons and go to “war” (and I loved it because it means that they won’t leave the hose running and waste water or flood my lawn).
