one way i keep my kids occupied on weekends is get house hold items and create a mini marathon with games including egg and spoon race 100 mtr sprint , javelin with a broom stick etc. i have also kept them occupied for hours by drawing them a map each and sending them on a tressure hunt finding simple things like certain flowers in the garden, or objects that have been placed by me.

hi yasmin,i have a 2 year old girl,she handsful,but one of my friends recently asked me to watch her daughters (6 years and 7 years) i was in a situation and these kids were really busy little girls,what i did was,i would have times that i would do things,like in the morning they were allowed to watch cartoons for an hour,then i would do housework,but then i gave them puzzles,lego's books and things to play with,after that they could play in the garden for a while.by then its lunchtime,they then would paint a million pictures,or draw with crayons,or maybe you could try musical chairs,they love that game.hope it helps.good luck.let me know how it went.

arts and crafts are fun for all ages and because your kids are close in age you can get your daughter to help your son on a project they can do together. She can cut out pieces of paper and he can glue them onto a paper plate or something.... this way the'll both be to busy with their task to fight. just a suggestion my 3 year old loves crafts and it's something we do together weekly....example: we use holidays as a theme....free decorations..lol
