1. If you have a wooden swing set, give your kids a box of crayons and let them decorate. (I didn't actually give them the crayons, they had this idea all on their own but it kept them busy for days!)
3. Cut the grass and leave all the clippings. My kids got creative and made a nest.
4. Turn on The Price Is Right. My kids love this show. Trust me, this will be just as entertaining for you as it is for them. I love to hear them shout prices at the TV and yelling at the people what to do. Brings me back to my childhood. I always loved this show. My girls already practice being 'Barker's Beauties' except for I'm sure they are not called this anymore. Maybe they are 'Drew's Dames' or 'Carey's Cuties'. Does anyone know?
Of course if these don't work you could always make them clean the house.
