Fight Summer Boredom with Old School Fun [Printable Activity Sheet]


magical atticSummer’s nearly here, which means we’re throwing the school year schedule out the window and managing a patchwork of activities to keep our kids occupied, entertained, and engaged. Summer camps, playdates, and family trips will fill a lot of time, but sometimes we all need a quiet day at home. Those often lead to moans of  “I’m booooored,” from the kids, so here’s an easy defense against their summer doldrums: old school fun with The Magical Attic activity sheets.

We’ll regularly post new activity sheets on the blog to help you and your kids put down the screens and pick up a pen to draw or play games together.

Here’s our first one! Click the image to print out the board game:magical attic
