It's only good for so long before she becomes destructive.  I need for her to get some energy out...maybe I'll just take her to the park where she can run around for a while.

She does have her pre-k homework to do but that will only take her a couple of minutes.

Right now, she's jumping up and down on the trampoline.

What zoo is closed?

I have all 4 of mine and my niece today. Well, my brother took my oldest over to work on the house... so I have my 4 little ones and the niece. The niece has decided that she only wants to play with Garrett and CJ who are playing with legos, so she is locked out of their room. None of her toys are good enough.... oh and going out is out of the question as 3 of them are sick (bronchitis and ear issues). Actually I have a 4pm appointment for my niece and Alex to go back to the peds.

board games, yoga, let her make up a work out routine the two of you have to do together, a walk (are there any nature trails around you), baking cookies or bread together (knedding dough will drain some energy), talk about MLK and maybe do a project related to that, plan dinner together, make the list together, shop and make the meal together

Well, we did the homework.  Oh boy!  Wait till the teacher gets a load of her final results!  LOL.

No nature trails...we're in the concrete jungle.  I took a walk but she didn't want to come with me.  I did pick up some cake decorating supplies so we'll bake a cake a little later.

The issue is that I have to contend with her and the baby who only takes cat naps during the day.  My SO has to work so it's just me & the kids.  Luckily my 13 year old is home so he's been great help in keeping her busy.
