What to do with the boys?

Okay ladies- I have 5 kids ages 16 down to 3. The older 3 (a boy & 2 girls) will be gone for Martin Luther King weekend with the youth group at church for winter camp. 

This leaves me with the younger 2, both boys, ages 9 & 3 for 2 whole days. Saturday is when the older ones leave. Sunday we always go to church. And Monday I have to work 8-5. 

My parents have offered to take the boys for a few hours so I can have some time to myself (like I would know what to do LOL). But I need ideas on what to do with the boys other than sit around the house & watch movies all weekend.

IDEAS?

What do you do with them on non holiday weekends?   I would go to a fun place that they would like.  Science centers are usually a hit with boys.

On non holiday weekends all 5 kids are home & therefore not much we can do that they will all enjoy without spending money. It's really not even about the holiday- it's about the fact that I haven't been with just 2 kids since... well since #2 was born! LOL

Yeah that is probably going to be weird for you.  The noise level will be lower and everything.  If you are feeling really creative, set up an obstacle course in the house for them to compete in.
