Whether it’s spring break, summer, or some random day off school you can almost guarantee your kids will be complaining they are bored at some point. It’s in their DNA. That’s when you have to get creative and whip some genius activity out of your back pocket. If you haven’t prepped for this situation that’s where I come in. Here’s a list of 20 non-screen activities that will keep your kids busy. The first one is my favorite!

1. Play with Wubble Fulla Slime and Wubble Fulla Marbles

The makers of the amazing Super Wubble®  Bubble Ball have done it again and made another awesome product – Wubble Fulla Slime and Wubble Fulla Marbles!

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 then they are going to 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”). Wubble Fulla 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!

    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

  2. Jayne Townsley says:

    When my grandchild is bored, she watches TV or does paper crafting.

  3. Christina Gould says:

    My kids like to play board games when they are bored. Thanks for posting!

  4. 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. 🙂

  5. 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.

  6. gloria patterson says:

    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.

  7. 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!

  8. Jamie Wilmer says:

    Thanks for the tips for sharing them with parents. Looks like fun I would love to try myself.

  9. My Grandchildren are usually good about finding things to do. I mail them little crafts and books each month. They love to read and do puzzles, those little lego kits are inexpensive and provide hours of fun. I like to create little craft kits and take them when I visit and we do some and they do some later. It’s so much fun watching their minds work while they are creating. I really like these Wubble Fulla Marbles also, they look like a good stress relief for anyone. I will have to put them on my shopping list. I like your list too, I think I will have them come up with a list of things they want to do and come up with something that my Daughter can give them to help them accomplish the goals on the list.

  10. Sheree lawson says:

    Rock candy I’ll have to give that a try my 10 year old gets bored easy lol

    • Home Jobs By Mom says:

      10 year olds can get bored pretty easily these days. I have a feeling that they will love the rock candy!

  11. Fun! I can see why your kids were beyond thrilled to receive these.

  12. I want one of those for myself LOL, it does look like fun! and I love the list you have here, We love having balloon fights .
