Nanny once children are at school

Our youngest has just started school and so our (wonderful) full time nanny has asked if there are any little jobs she can do around the house to help out during the day.

I just don't know what sort of tasks would be acceptable for her to do. I know I should be having this conversation with her but she is so nice she is likley to just say yes to anything I say.

What would you think it would be reasonable to suggest? Preparing our evening meals? Help with decorating?! (we already have a cleaner who does our washing/ironing)

I have told her to take some time to herself during the day but I know she's not comfortable doing that too much.

Any suggests would be very welcome! Thanks
