Boredom busters gift guide and giveaway: Win £300 of goodies for keeping kids busy!

(This post contains affiliate links) There is NOTHING worse than hearing the words; “I’m Bored!” as a parent. Which is why we all need some boredom busters in our back pocket, right?

Hearing the dreaded – I’m bored – makes us feel that we aren’t doing as much as we should to keep our kids entertained, while also knowing that we are going to have to listen to whining for the next hour. Usually, while said child tries to work out what to do….

Being bored IS good for our kids, it helps them to use their imaginations to find things to do. But that DOESN’T mean we don’t need a few ideas in our locker once in a while to help out. So we have put together a fabulous Boredom Busters Gift Guide for you (kids aged 4-9), and the best thing is you can WIN THEM ALL! The bundle of prizes includes:

This is around £300 of Boredom Busters goodies that you can win to entertain YOUR kids!

We hope you agree that this should keep your kids from getting too bored, as well as encouraging them to get outside a little more too.

We reserve the right to change prizes depending on stock levels, but this would be of similar value of course, and still relevant to your kids. The giveaway for this bundle will close on Thursday 9th May at 11.59pm. Hopefully with these boredom busters, you might just get 15 minutes to yourself for a sit down?!!?

We have included a little more details below on all of these amazing gifts, so that you know what you are getting yourself in to. There is enough here to keep the kids entertained through birthdays, holidays and even to Christmas!

Gelli baff - boredom busters gift guide

Gelli Baff is a great bath time product that lets you turn your bath into a goey bit of fun; then with another application of a separate powder, back into coloured water to drain it away. Easy clean up. And no slime/goey stuff on the carpet!

Hubelino construction toy – ball track (RRP £34.99)

A boredom busters gift guide wouldn’t be complete without a construction toy now, would it? However, we have opted for something a little bit different; this is a ball track from Hubelino. A marble run with a difference. This is a good toy for slightly older children to get creative and problem solve. They will love working out how to best get their ball through the track. It is compatible with Duplo, but there is more than enough within this set to keep the kids entertained (45 pieces in the set).
