Use this list of 40 fun summer activities for kids to help ward off boredom this summer. It is getting that time of the summer where kids are over the excitement of finishing school and have run out of ideas that make summer fun. If that excitement is starting to wear off, or has already worn off for the kiddos, then this list will be gold for you.

I have to be honest that I don’t have this problem. The statements, “I’m bored!” and “There’s nothing to do!” are not allowed in my house. If I hear anything about being bored, my kids know I will give them a chore to do really quickly. Even the kids that come over to plat at the house are not allowed to say it either. I give a disclaimer when kids come over, ” If you are bored, then I will give you something to clean.” Not joking. However, it is good to keep some ideas handy for keeping kids engaged during the summertime.
