Whether your kid is 2 or 5, there's nothing worse than when they're bored in the Summer. The hours are long and a lot falls on you. When they're older you can work with them on coping with boredom and help them understand the importance of finding things to do during the quiet times, but when they're younger and haven't mastered that, it's really up to the parent to keep them entertained. It's exhausting.
Which is why I'm clicking "Order" on this bestselling Intex Rainbow Inflatable Play Center ($38, originally $60). Where traditional kiddie pools and water tables fail, this all-in-one is like a mini amusement park in your backyard. There's a water slide, wading pool, water sprayer at the top, and ring toss game with four inflatable rings. When they grow tired with one section just introduce them to the next! It's the perfect thing to toss in the grass, and it's on sale right now!
