Boredom Busting with John Adams and IDEAL games | AD

With another 5 weeks of summer stretching out in front of us, I am looking for ways to keep the kids entertained. Luckily, John Adams and IDEAL games have us covered.

Not only have they sent us a selection of games to keep us entertained, but they are also giving a lucky reader the chance to win their very own bundle too.

Munchin’ Monkey

Munchin Monkey is a hilarious game from IDEAL and really appeals to Henry who is obsessed with all things poo!

Fill the bowl with coconuts and water and then take turns rolling the dice to feed the monkey. Keep taking turns until his paper nappy splits.

This is such a fun game and one that is great for the whole family.


Soggy Doggy has been on the Bears wish list for ages now so she was incredibly excited to find it in our boredom buster bundle!

Suitable for 2 – 4 players, the aim of the game is to race around the board, washing and grooming the dog as you go. Soak the dog, turn the taps but beware because if and when he shakes, not only will you get wet, but you will also have to head back to the start.

My kids love anything that involves water so needless to say, this has been an instant hit and I see many soaking wet games in our future!


Doh Nutters is such a great game for the whole family. In fact, it’s Ele-fantastic! (See what I did there??)

Most people know how this works: use the trunks to grab the donuts which is actually a lot harder than it looks, a lot funnier.

What I liked about this game too is that there are two options to play. (1) the first person to collect all donuts of the colour at the top of their card is the winner, and (2) the first person to collect all the donuts on their card wins.


StarJarz come in two different options: Best Friends Forever and Secrets & Dreams. Both options are fabulous keepsake jars which come complete with 40 keepsake tokens to write, colour and personalise. Once done, post them through the slot and see the jar light up.

We are really looking forward to spending the summer completing our tokens and recording all of our memories.


It’s a brilliant bundle isn’t it? The great news is that you can win your very own John Adams and IDEAL games bundle including all the games included in this post. Just enter via Rafflecopter using the link below and follow the usual social media accounts to be in with a chance of winning.
