I agree with tartac a movie is a bad idea with 4 year olds! We just had an awesome swimming party with my 4 year olds! we bought a big 10 x 6 blow up pool, a slip and slide and a baby pool. and then i had 3 games to play where they got tickets and had to count them to buy their prizes!
Yes i know it sound like a bunch of work but really it wasn't.
they played one sided corn hole, dropped clothes pins into mason jars and then threw baseballs at soda cans. i went to the dollar store and bought a bunch of little things like balls, hair ties, bubbles, any thing that i could find (you have boys, i had girls) go with what ever you want.
so they all ran and ran and ran for 2 hours. I got some nice comments on how busy they were the entire time and how well they slept that night!! i also have a swingset for them too.
hope this helps!
