Summer is in full swing, school has been out for a few weeks now and sooner or later it’s going to happen – the kids are going to get bored. Those of us in the working world have no idea how or why this happens, but the best defense is a good offense, right?
Lucky for you, we’ve just added lots of great new toys and activities for kids for those rainy days or when sunburn strikes and they need a break from the pool. As an added bonus, none of these toys require your children to stare at a screen or even stay indoors!
