Summer Boredom Busters from Buffalo Games + Pop It #Giveaway

Thanks to Buffalo Games for providing me with products for this post.

While my kiddos are preparing to head back to school, there are plenty of kids who don't start school quite this early. Lots of families are still heading out on road trips, making the most of the rest of their summer break. We've had a lot of fun summer adventures, and while I'm sad to see summer break end, it's inevitable. Our trips wouldn't have been as wonderful and smooth as they were, had it not been for some really fun entertainment options for the kids. Sure, they had their hands on their tablets and game systems off and on, but we also made sure that they had some good old-fashioned non-screen activities to do while traveling, too. It's all about balance, right?

Some of our favorite summertime travel activities were from Buffalo Games. Their line of Chuckle & Roar games and activities are just perfect for kids who are looking for engaging ways to stay entertained, whether at home or on the go. From popular fidget toys to art activities, Chuckle and Roar has products that every kid will love.

Here are our top picks from Chuckle and Roar...

Shape Makers $14.99

Chuckle & Roar Shape Makers ($14.99, Ages 6+) - 

These magnetic foam tangram puzzles are great to take on summer road trips. 

We have had so much fun playing with the Shape Makers. From figuring out how to solve puzzles and making different shapes, to creating our own unique scenes with the included pieces, our family has loved playing with this set. It's a great little set to have on hand for those 'I'm bored' moments on a trip, and equally fun to play with at home. They're great for kids to enjoy together, with friends, or just on their own for independent playtime.

Scribble Glow Board $12.99

Chuckle & Roar Scribble Glow ($12.99, Ages 3+) - 

No need to worry about marker stains on car seats or running out of paper with this all-in-one LCD doodle board. This is such a fun board! My kids love to draw and color in the car, and let's face it... that can be messy. No one likes crayons or colored pencils strewn about the back seat, or worse, having to listen to kids say 'I dropped my crayon' 20+ times in one trip. This board lights up, has an attached pen (no ink), and comes with a set of stencils for hours of creative play. No dropping or losing the pen, no mess on your upholstered seats, just lots of fun!

If your kids love to doodle, this is perfect for them!

Take the Scribble Glow everywhere your kids go- to the doctor's office, to grandma's house, to restaurants, to church, etc. We just toss ours into my purse and it's at the ready anytime one of the kids is looking for something to do. No more handing over a phone for them to play on. This option is so much better.

Pop It! (prices vary)

Chuckle & Roar Pop It! Collection ($7.99 - $9.99, Ages 3+) - 

The most popular toy of the year - our never-ending bubble popping game never gets boring, is easy to pack (no additional parts or pieces), and is quick to clean.

I almost can't believe how obsessed kids are with these, but they are! Pretty much every child I know over the age of four has one or more of these toys. Teachers, get ready to see them in your classrooms again! These are really fun to sit and pop over and over again. They're fairly quiet, and keep kids entertained for hours! We have some of these in various shapes and sizes, and the kids just go crazy over them. Want a winner or a gift for a kid's birthday? Definitely include a Pop It in their birthday bag!

B loves this Pop It and can't wait to keep it at his desk back at school this year.

These activities and games are just right for kids ages 3+. My kids are 10 and 5, and they both love playing with all three of these cool games. I love that they are screen-free and really do keep the kids entertained. The lower price points make them great gift options for those birthday parties that we're being invited to again!
