Activites for a 3, 5 and 8 year old.....

I'm watching 3 kids throughout the week (the 3 year old is mine) and am running out of things to do with them.

We go on walks, play with sidewalk chalk. Do activities on paper (draw, paper airplanes), they watch movies/tv, eat a bunch.. I dunno what else I can do. They stay from 7AM to 4:30PM

The 5 yr old is a boy, 8 yr old is a girl. Thanks.

  • Music - have them dance, play freeze games (freeze when the music stops)

    Games with balloons

    Water activities - sprinkler, just running through the hose, water balloons for the older ones

    Tie dye?

    Take them to the park

    Buy the cheap ice cream cones or a drink and let them run around the play place at McDonald's

    board games
