Activity bags for older children
As always, this site is a wealth of information and I was wondering if anyone had any ideas for activities that girls between the ages of 6 and 12 could do during the dinner? One of them is 6 and two are 11-12, so a bit older.
I have boys not girls but honestly they're not interested in activities - they either want video games or to physically run around with their friends (playing football or laser tag etc...)
the best suggestion I could make is maybe a magazine? but it would have to correlate to their personal interests
I've got a girl and boy coming who will be 9 and 7, so in the middle of yours. I've put together some note pads, colouring books, pens and a crossword/wordsearch activity book to give them something to do. Along with some shaped rubbers for the girl and a toy car and helicopter for the boy. It might not all be used but that way, they have the choice!
My planning thread
thank you everyone! Great ideas.
