Boredom Busting Ideas to keep the kids busy this Summer

Creation Station | Crafts | Events | Free Stuff | Creation Station News | Activities for Kids | Seasonal Activities for Kids | Parenting

Six WHOLE weeks!? We know.. but fear not! We have 15 (and a half for good measure) ideas and activities to keep the kiddies (and yourself) busy this summer...take a look at our first one below. 

1. Painting With Water simple, but effective. 1 half

When it's dry outside, take a bucket of water and a few brushes and paint the walls and floors outside, (this won't work if your walls are white!) this could be a pavement, or path, or even a wooden fence. The walls and floors change colour but then dry out after a while, mess free! 

Take old decorating brushes and rollers and let the children experiment with the different effects the brushes and rollers make. If you have space outside this is a great physical activity and can involve stretching. 

As the watermarks don't remain there are lots of opportunities to talk about making marks, lots of different shapes and use the same canvas again and again. 

Try this out at home and share your creations with The Creation Station Ltd on Facebook with the #CreationStation hashtag.

The workshop was very informative and my son enjoyed himself. It would be beneficial if another assistant was available as my son was sometimes overlooked which meant that I had to leave my other child unattended to help him

We attended two family fun sessions and they were perfect for my 6 and 2 year old. It was really nice to find something they could both enjoy together. There was lots of choice of things to make and good quality materials. We made lots of Easter themed crafty items to take away. We'll definitely go back.

Liza did an amazing job leading craft activities at my daughter's birthday party recently. She was really organised and easy to talk to and came round in advance of the party to make arrangements. On the day of the party she helped all of the children to create lovely arty objects. Her manner with the children was excellent and my daughter absolutely loved the party. I would definitely recommend the Arty Party with Liza to other parents! Thank you!

Such a lovely morning. My little boy who usually doesn't like stuff like this had a great time and did not stop talking about it all day!
