Here are 10 Five-Minute Bonding Activities as well as links to other ideas. http://adoption.about.com/od/parenting/tp/fiveminutebond.htm
Some include reading stories, singing songs, clapping games, rocking, staring contests (to promote eye contact) lotioning, tucking in at night, painting fingers and toe nails, etc. The link provides more of the reasons why these are good suggestions and the goals in each one. Good luck! :)

I think that would be a very tough decision. I think i would listen to them and see what they have to say and 10 minutes of listing could tell you alot about the children to put you on a path or direction.

I think you would have to get to know each other. They would need to learn to trust you.In time you will start to bond.
