Summer Fun with This 3D Board Game

Summer break is almost here and I am already “tired” of hearing, “I’m Bored”. It happens every year. The first few days of summer are a bliss. Sleeping in, relaxing, and unwinding from the constant motion of a school time routine. After those first few days though, it turns into a constant mantra of “I’m Bored”. It’s inevitable. One of my favorite ways to get through this boredom, however, is board games.

I find myself constantly searching the internet for toddler fun and fun toddler activities in my area or pinning a million posts on my Pinterest account that I know, I probably won’t ever go back and look at. It’s a shame truly because the ideas are amazing but the motivation to round up all of the supplies necessary just isn’t there to complete such an elaborate task. Not to mention toddlers attention span lasts a lot less than the time it takes to round up and prepare for some activities but I desperately try to eliminate screen time as much as I can in our technology-filled world. That’s not to say they don’t get any screen time because they do, but I try to feed their minds in others ways as well. That is why I took a step back and reevaluated what else I could do that would be fun for toddlers and the answer is, sticking to the basics! Crayons, markers, stickers, and paper.
