What are some activities I can do with my twins without them fighting?

I feel like I am not giving my boys enough attention, I am either cleaning the house or doing homework; however, I have had the luxury of having the last 3 months off from school, when I try to do arts and crafts with the boys it is a constant battle of "mommy attention" I try to give them both an equal amount of attention, I always have. But I understand it can get tiring having to share pretty much everything.

I am expecting just one baby at the minute but I also have 5 yo twin sisters who are constantly vying for the attention of my mum and others around them. I find that they are at there best when doing physical activities which tire them out...swimming is good to do with them as they take it in turns to jump in etc. It really depends how old your boys are. Team sports such as football or creating obsticle courses in the back garden are also fun to do with them as they are active and can take it in turns which gives you the ability to give them individual encouragement and support. In general I think competitiveness is just part of being a twin and something they have to get used to.

Other than that my mum always makes sure she spends one on one time with my sisters doing an activity of thier choice, so they get the chance to experience something individual to them...obviously this helps having me and the rest of my family around as we are able to look after the other twin whilst this happens.
