Walks around the neighborhood, bike rides (if you can get bikes for the kids you're watching), the garden's a great idea. Swimming, if you have easy access to a pool or a lake, or get a slip n slide or something for the back yard. Movies are good for calming things down, and a great way to get out of the heat. If you have a video camera, depending on their ages they could make their own movie. They could write a script, construct sets if they need them. Someone can be director, producer, camera operator, etc. I found a site that lists some fun summer activities. Some of them are away from home, but I think a lot of those can still be adapted to do in your own backyard, depending on the size of it.
