Summer “Bored Sticks” Jar

This is a follow up post to the post I did in January about Winter “Bored Sticks” Jar, but with ideas tailored for summer.

I will add to this, as and when I come up with more ideas!

Summer “Bored Sticks” Jar

  1. Make Gloop with buttons
  2. Getting the plastic balls and the tent out
  3. Make cookies
  4. Do some painting
  5. Do some glueing and sticking
  6. Make some birthday cards
  7. Feed the ducks (Black Dam Pond is the best place for this I believe)
  8. Build an obstacle course in the garden (Ikea have some great things for this. We bought one of these tunnels at Christmas and it’s great as it folds away but can be used inside and outside. Great with loads of plastic balls inside on a wet day and great as part of an obstacle course outside on a nice day.)
