Need ideas to keep the Cracken (my girls) occupied for more than 5 min?

I have tried several things today...lets see. Jumpstart online, movies, playstation 2, Wii, Playstation 3, slip n slide, bike riding, cookie making, nail painting, coloring, reading...the list goes on and on. Nothing has kept them quiet and not fighting for more than 5 min. I NEED A BREAK! They are 6 and 7.

  • Have you tried getting them to do things separately. One in room and one in another. Have something special for each one that they like on their own. Maybe spending so much time together is getting to them

  • Chores? Puzzles? Games? a play set out back? a puppy? How about the babysitter we call TV? They have to have a favorite cartoon?

  • LOL.... CHORES! There's no reason for them to be fighting.
