I don't know about your kids, but mine love soft or squishy things they can play with.
If your kiddos are into how things feel like mine are, they will love these guys.
Wubble Fulla Slime and Wubble Fulla Marbles are so squishy and a blast to play with.
You can toss it. Catch it. Stretch it. Slam it.
Your kids will never want to put in down.
Seriously, they will want to take it to school and show all their friends! They remind me of stress balls but SO much more fun.

They come in three sizes: Huge (5″), Big (4″), or Tiny (just under 2 ½”). This slime is filled with the best kind of slime – contained slime!
With the DIY slime craze going on, your kids will love Wubble Fulla Slime, a slime they won't get yelled at for making a mess with.
On the other hand, Wubble Fulla Marbles remind me of these DIY stress balls we made last summer with water beads and balloons.
Wubble Fulla Marbles are so much stronger than those guys that popped after a few squishes.
As with anything, Wubble Fulla Slime and Wubble Fulla Marbles are not indestructible. You can't go absolutely nuts playing with these guys and not expect them to get a hole.
They still are super fun while they last!
Both of my kids were beyond thrilled to receive these. You should have seen their faces light up with excitement.
That's how you know something will make a great gift!
Wubble Fulla Slime and Wubble Fulla Marbles are recommended for children ages 6 and older and retail for $14.99 (Huge), $9.99 (Big), and $7.99 (Tiny).

I’m a big kid. I probably have just as much as fun as the kids do LOL
My kids would definitely love both the slime and marble filled Wubbles! I love that they are contained within something, that is a fantastic way for them to play with it mess free!

Fair warning though, they can be too rough with them or they will bust. Learned that the hard way!
A lot of good things listed here. I am old and remember we loved summer, and I don’t think we ever complained about being bored. We would be out of the house bright and early and so were our friends. We had bikes, dirt and creative minds just to list one thing. We would go home for lunch or mom would yell for us then back out the door.
I dont have children, but when I was a child, I hardly ever got bored. I’m a millennial so I assume that had something to do with it, but some of it was just me as a person. I taught myself to read at age 4, and I was reading full books by the age of 5. I was playing piano at age 3, learning to read music before I knew how to read. I spent time with friends, and I loved to learn. I loved to talk to my mother, and learn about the world.
Learning to read at 4 is amazing! I would my children enjoyed reading more. You sound like you are very smart!
I don’t have children, but I have a niece and two nephews. They aren’t old enough to get bored yet. My oldest nephew is five, and he is always coming up with something to do. 🙂
Got to love the imagination of a child
My kids like to play board games when they are bored. Thanks for posting!
Board games are always fun! I need to go through mine and see if there are any missing pieces.
When my grandchild is bored, she watches TV or does paper crafting.
What kind of paper crafts does she do?
the kids like to play outdoors or be on the computer. taking the dog to the park is fun and I will get crafts for them on weekends
We’ve been doing the dog park a lot lately. Our pup is still scared but she braves up after a bit.
