    Default Help! I need ideas for tomorrow!

    At late notice I am babysitting my friends 2 kids. So tomorrow I will have my 2 girls (miss J is 23months) then an 18month old and a 3.5 yr old. I have them from 6.30am till 6 tomorrow night.
    What can I do with them other than tv? I'll make some play dough in the morning for them, Any other suggestions? Maybe a cubby house? I'm open to all suggestions. Mainly indoor stuff cause I think it's going to be raining still

    Some cooking? Then you could have a picnic inside on a rug or something?

    I was going to suggest the 4 ingredients scones aswell, or some basic biscuit recipe, make some icing and let them decorate?

    Drawing, Painting, Dress-Ups, Puzzles.. umm ummm ummmm.

    What the others said as well as:
    reading books,
    singing songs with actions,
    a variation of simon says where they just copy,
    have you got any boxes? Could make a cubby or put things in them- sorting games,
    hide and seek toys- can you find the ball? etc...
    Will keep thinking.

    Dancing to music
    play with toys on the loungeroom floor
    dress ups (did someone already say that?)
    blowing bubbles- you and could give the kiddies a go too, maybe put a sheet down or something though lol

    pretend shops - get some stuff out of your pantry and set it up on the bench, takes turns to be the shop keeper.
    get out some of your old clothes and shoes and play dressup
    dye some tubular noodles/pasta (if you have them) with food dye and let them string them onto some ribbon/twine
    puzzles and drawing are huge here

    ummm will come back if I think of more
