  • Build forts, watch a movie scene then act it out, make up a story together and write it down on paper, maybe go on a treasure hunt in your house, play music and dance out the energy and maybe they will just want to sit and nap or watch a movie... :)

  • Well, you could always make collages- cut pages or pictures from magazines and newspapers and glue them on a piece of construction paper or regular paper. If you have a digital camera, you can have each of them take some pictures and then let them look at them on the computer, or you could fill up the bathtub with warmish water, give them some bath or pool toys and their swimming trunks, and let them play in the water for a while! lol
