GUYS, I AM SUPER EXCITED FOR TODAY’S POST. I think you’re really going to love it! Over the past few months, my friendsย Megan, K.A., Allison, and I have been working on something extremely amazing for you guys. It’s creative, challenging, and super, super, fun – and what’s more, it’s the perfect cure to all those long summer afternoons when you’re suffering from boredom and wishing for something awesome to do!

Now that you’re hopefully as excited as I am – my friends, it is my pleasure to introduce to you…

*enthusiastic applause* YAY!

The Summer Bored Games is a fun and creative way to bust boredom this summer, with dozens of wacky challenges – from thoughtful, creative pursuits to completely random activities. Collect points by completing challenges, and enter to win an awesome prize!

Let’s take a look at the details, shall we? ๐Ÿ˜€

CHALLENGE HOSTS:

Megan // A Barefoot Gal
Clara // Clara & Co.
K. A. // Cuddly Critters Blog
Allison // A Farm Girl’s Life

CHALLENGE RULES:

We four hosts (Megan, K.A., Allison, and I) will take turns posting a challenge post, one a week, for the month of July.
Each post will include 35 challenges, ranging from 1-4 points each – the harder the challenge, the more points you earn! Super hard or courageous challenges earn you Mega Points, which means 10 points instead of 1-4.
Participants collect points by successfully completing challenges. You don’t have to do the challenges in the order we list them, and you obviously don’t have to do them all (but then you won’t get as many points). However, you must complete any weekly challenges within the week that they are postedย for those points to count. If you miss a week, feel free to do the challenges just for fun, but they won’t earn you any points toward the giveaway.

HOW TO REDEEM POINTS:

In each of the challenge posts, a survey will be provided that participants can use to send their points from the completed challenges to a host blogger for a chance to win a prize (host bloggers are not eligible for the prize). However, if a participant would rather conquer the challenges just for fun and not win a prize, then they can simply complete the challenges however they wish and not worry about keeping track of points.

PRIZES:

Prizes come in a three-tier winner system. Participants are entered for a chance to win the prize corresponding to their point range.
If, at the end of the challenge, you have 0-50 points, you are not eligible to win a prize. If you are in the lowest prize tier, which is for participants with 51-250 points, you have a chance of winning a $5 Amazon gift card. If you are in the middle prize tier, which is for participants with 251-400 points, you have a chance of winning a $10 Amazon gift card. If you are in the top prize tier, which is for participants with 401+ points, you have a chance of winning a $15 Amazon gift card.
At the end of the challenge, we’ll tally up each participantโ€™s total points, fit them into the proper point tier, and random-generate the winners. If you work hard, you can earn yourself more of a chance for more of a prize!

    1. Hey, Mukta! I don’t believe you did sign up, actually – I don’t see an email with your name in it. There’s only a few hours left to sign up – sorry I’m so late in replying to this!
