Ok, DS is a bit poorly (earache and temp). He'll be off school tomorrow and DD (just 4) will be home with me too as she doesn't go to nursery on Wed. We will be chilling out and I think the Ipad and the TV will feature along with books, games (both quite into various orchard and similar at the moment).
Just wondered if anyone could inspire me any other easy/low maintenance ideas so we don't all fall out and kill each other. They normally play really well together but DD is just over a similar bug, DS's energy levels are clearly low so I think leaving them to play for any length of time will not be much of an option. DS is not so poorly he just needs to lie on the sofa but he isn't up to speed either.
Make silly soup. Couple of big saucepans, jugs of water and stuff from cupboards. Cheap pasta, some rice, get them to chop up some herbs if you grow your own, turmeric to make it yellow ... Keeps ds entertained for ages
