How old are they? My 6 year-old will sit on the couch for hours and read, my 21 month-old will color for at least 30 mins at a time and my 5 month-old loves being in her bouncer chair. I guess it's different for each kid, but you have to find something that each of your children love and encourage them to do it. We buy the oldest new books every week and middle one gets a new box of crayons and coloring book every month. We encourage them as much as possible to do activities they love and I have found that it really helps keep them entertained for longer periods of time.

Hope that helps and good luck!
