Hi everyone I am Sara from CleverPinkPirate.com and I am sharing a fun way to fight summer boredom with some easy and fun backyard games for kids!
BACKYARD GAMES FOR KIDS
If you have kids, you probably hear them say “I’m bored” at least a dozen times throughout the summer. I’ve created a fun kit that you can use to help fight the summer boredom! This kit is full of fun toys, activities and backyard games that will keep them busy for hours.
The bucket is from the hardware store full and is filled with toys from the dollar store and decorated with a vinyl cut out from the Cricut Maker. You can make these buckets for family picnics, camping trips, 4th of July gatherings and more! This bucket only took about 20 minutes to make and by purchasing the toys at the dollar store, this bucket only cost around $15 to create!
