Summer Fun is Better with M!

This is a sponsored post about summer fun and boredom.  Here we are at the end of July and summer fun is kind of in full swing…or alternately, the novelty has worn off for many and kids are starting to tell parents they are BORED.  Now, some of us are of the mindset that kids can, will and should make their own entertainment- how many of us were told to go play outside and come back in for lunch?  Raise your hands!!  But sometimes, a little entertainment can go a long way.  Entertainment like silly games…and while maybe you won’t want the kids online all day, playing a fun game with the beloved M&Ms characters like ShMuffleboard can be a whole lot of fun for kids- and then you can send them back out with the idea they can create their own version of ShMuffleboard.
