When summer comes all of the routines and habits you had established can easily go out the window. Kids suddenly have a lot more free time which means at some point they will inevitably say "I'm bored".
So I created the "Boredom Bucket".
I up-cycled the 'bucket' from a Mountain High Yoghurt container.
A bowl of yogurt, sprinkled with some fresh fruit and that day is started right.
Don't miss the coupon that Mountain High Yoghurt is offering, just scroll down to get the scoop on their page.
I love that their yoghurt comes in a big container so I can serve just the right amounts to my kids, no more half eaten yoghurts that way.
Our summer hasn't been long enough yet for my kids to utter those word 'I'm bored", but I decided to be preemptive and ensure that I was ready for when those words came.
The Boredom Bucket
I marked where the container ended then cut the piece straight across. It didn't quite cover the whole container, so I cut a straight strip to fill in the gap.
I used the lid as a template to cut a piece to cover the lid.
It came together quickly and I then had the Boredom Bucket; which of course needed to filled with ideas.
