Summer’s hitting the halfway mark and some of us are looking for fresh inspiration to keep our curious kids happy and busy! We’ve dug up a few activities for all ages that will surely entertain and enchant. And you can do them in your own back yard!

A bit of boredom on a summer afternoon is good for us all but at least with these ideas you’ll be ready when a little more action is called for!

Pool Noodle Race Track

A craft as well as an activity and something that can be done in any weather, we love these pool noodle race tracks! Cut a pool noodle in half lengthwise and, voilà, it becomes a race track, a marble chute or a water run. An easy and adaptable project that can be brought out again and again.

Ladybug Painted Rocks

Painting rocks! As long as you set up for a possible mess, it’s a creative and relaxing project for the whole family. We’ve found there’s a lot of room for interpretation when it comes to painting ladybugs, so don’t be afraid to let them go wild!

Solar S’more Oven

The Solar S‘more Oven is a super fun science project with a sweet reward at the end. It’ll take some help from an adult and some patience all round, but it’s worth the wait.
