4. I like the idea of having them run around and get sleepy
Edited on Fri Nov-05-04 04:26 AM by Bushneedstogo
I thought that I could buy a couple of pizza kits and some vegetables from the salad bar and let them make their own pizzas. (Hands busy LOL)

I have a bunch of magazines, a couple pairs of safety scissors, some construction paper and glue sticks and I will let them cut pictures out and make a collage out of them. (Hands busy again LOL)

I think that your suggestion for the eldest boy is a good one but I would have to clear it with his mom first. If he could settle down it would make everything much easier on all of us.

Thanks for the suggestions they are great ideas that I will jot down so that I can use them in the future. :hug:
