Tomorrow I am babysitting for one of my teachers shes has become a friend to me, she has coustody of her 2 year old granddaughter and her other daughter is comming up with her two sons and I will watch them also 4 and 6 I believe...I will be watching them at her apartment which has no cable and no internet...I was woundering things I could do with the three of them together when I watch them? What can I bring or do?? I don't want them to be bored all day!! It most likely will be raining so we cant go to the park!

The older two are boys, and the two year old is a girl.

You can play hide-and-seek. Coloring books are great. You can find really cheap crayons and coloring books at the dollar store. If you search google, you can also find coloring pages. You can also just bring blank printer paper and make cards for their grandma or mom. I'm sure they will have a few toys you can play with. Legos will ok for the older boys but it requires a lot of watching to make sure they don't eat them. They can also be a little messy. Bring a few kiddy books along to read.
If you have any simple board games, like guess who, you might consider bringing that along.
Good luck! And have fun.

Bring a couple board games maybe? Something like Twister or checkers? I find that movies are fun as well as some sort of arts and crafts project. Making Macaroni necklaces would be fun for the little girls!

Playing hide and seek is usually a hit with the kids. You could also doing a baking project with them. Or some sort of science project type thing (like vinegar and baking soda explosions). Or bring some chalk and play outside.

Hope this helped!

I babysat the entire summer, but the kids were a bit older.

One of the things they loved though was making food. I have a kids cookbook and I used that all the time. They loved cooking things from my cookbook.

Another big thing with them was lots of arts and crafts. I'm a rather crafty person, so we'd do things like color or draw. Does she have TV with a DVD player or something? The girls liked to watch movies sometimes.

I know my lil brother and his friends really like when I make up stories for them.
The really young ones don't quite get them though, so maybe do something later for them (:


When you can't find your way home,
and when life gets too hard to face on your own.
I will stand as a light through the darkness unknown,
I will walk with you, so you're never alone.
