After this week, we don’t have any excuse to let our children be bored, anymore!  Thanks to all of you who shared the magnificently creative projects in this week’s challenge, Kids’ Boredom Busters.  From travel games to puppet theaters to kid-friendly foods and beyond, you had an impressive array of ways to keep children busy. This challenge had a wealth of great ideas for moms, grandmas, babysitters, teachers, and anyone else who needs to keep busy little minds and bodies out of trouble.  Thank you for the inspiration!

This week, our guest judge was the creatively minded Marie LeBaron from Make and Takes.  

Marie was just as impressed with your boredom busting ideas as we were!  Here’s what she told us:

“What fabulous projects were submitted.  I’m having a hard time picking out just 10, as all of these are such great ways to beat the boredom blues!  You all are so creative.  Your kids will thank you!  Thanks for letting me be a part of the series, this week!”
