4yo & a 3rd grader.. how to entertain?

Today I am watching my DD (4.5) and 2 brothers: one is almost 5 & the other will be entering 3rd grade this year (sorry not sure of age lol).

I pretty much think the younger 2 will be just fine... But I have no clue what to do with an older kid around?!!!
Any ideas/tips for me!?

  • If you have a game system that works, internet of course monitoring has alot of free kid friendly games. You can also rent movies. You can go to the park. You can go to the movies. You can let them play in the water even a sprinkler or hose works.
