What are some fun things to do when babysitting?
2,5,8,9 that's quite a spread and hard to find something that they will all like. Hide and go seek is a good one - you have to pretend to not know where they are when they're young 2, 5 and possbly 8? You could also enlist te older ones to help out the younger ones by teaming them up. Do a paper trail that leads to the end surprise - for example, the first note (clue) they get is a hint of where the next note is like, You just got up, where do you clean your teeth? Then, in the bathroom or in the tooth brush holder, you've place clue #2 that says, Boy, you're hungry. Where do you sit for breakfast? Then at their place at the table, they find Clue #3. All clues lead to the grand surprise - a coupon for ice cream, later in the day/ a deck of cards (or another bored game - so you can all play a game or a prize of your choosing. Also, store is a good game. Get paper bags and have the kids go shopping They can purchase anything in the house that isn't breakable, valuble, and fits in their bag. Then you are the cashier and they bring their purchases to you. You ring them up and bag them - then ask them to help you restock and put things back where they go. Have to be creative. good luck!!
