A MUM has come up with a very clever way of preventing kids from getting bored during the school holidays – and any parent can copy.
The savvy woman revealed how she has written a range of activities on lollipop sticks and all she has to do is select one at random each day.

Taking to Facebook, she wrote: “Not sure if you can read my writing but I’ve made these, that I’m naming The Sticks Of Destiny.
“Red activities cost money, blue are craft ideas, green are outdoors&free/minimal costs and purple are indoor&free/minimal costs.”
She shared a photo of the activity ideas, with craft ideas including face painting and rock painting.
Meanwhile, other ideas include going to the beach, going for a picnic, making playdough, doing a treasure hunt and watching a film.
The colour coordinated sticks also help for times if money is tight, as she can easily select the free purple sticks to save some cash.
The free ideas include playing with Lego, reading a book and doing makeovers.
That’s one great way to keep boredom at bay!
