How to beat summer holiday boredom

The summer holidays are by far the best part of the whole school year. The only thing is, there is only so much we can do before we all get bored and start becoming grumpy and annoyed.

That’s when going back to school becomes a wish of a lot of us. But fear not – this will be a problem for previous summers only. This year is different!

Here are some activities you can do to kick boredom in the butt.

Why not go strawberry picking? On a warm sunny day, this could be the perfect activity for friends or family. Strawberries are, after all, a summer fruit which means hours of fun to be had and a sweet healthy treat at the end of it all. And at the end of it all?

Giving back 🙋🏾‍♂️

Why not volunteer your time to a worthy cause?
