This ‘Best Boredom Buster Busters, Games, and Toys’ was first seen at Thrifty Nifty Mommy. Sponsored by Ravensburger trio of brands and ThinkFun, as always, all opinions are my own.
While I’m not staying up to date on every state’s mandates, I do know that Minnesota has just extended theirs. So now, we’re homebound for another month and restaurants are mandated to stay closed till at least the beginning of May. Talk about a downer. I know I’m not alone in wanting life to go back to normal. However, I also understand how important it is to play it safe in this scenario. It’s definitely best to over plan and be careful as lives are at stake. So with that said, I’ve teamed up with the Ravensburger trio of brands and ThinkFun today. We wanted to share some of the best boredom busters, games, and toys with you that are both fun and educational.
