Keeping The Kids Busy This Summer With Books2Door

Disclosure - This is a collaborative post. Books2Door referral scheme gives us both £5 off our orders by buying through this link

We are midway through the Summer holidays and I am happy to say I haven't heard the dreaded phrase 'I'm Bored' yet from little J. We have been busy travelling and we have had a few days out too. Also we've enjoyed days in the garden and chilled afternoons. I like to keep busy when it's raining outside otherwise little J will reach for the screen. Having said that he is easily distracted and a few of his favourite things at the moment are colouring and reading so I ordered some supplies from Books2Door to keep him entertained.
