Climbing the walls this week...good ideas for activities?

We've been stuck in the house all week as 2 out of 3 DC's have contagious infections. My lovely DS (3) has been really good about it, as he's the one who's not ill, but was hoping for some inspiration from other MNetters for different, not too expensive activities? After a whole week of not going out we've become a bit too reliant on the TV/DVD's, something I want to remedy next week.

How sick are the other two? When my son had chicken pox we played outside but (under a flyover) where no one else was playing so he didn't infect anyone?

Baking, dens, crafts?

They have impetigo, aren't really suffering but not really willing to inflict it on anyone else! We've done crafty stuff, do lots of baking ordinarily. Have avoided going outside as the weather has been so shite this week. Just feel like we need to do some different stuff next week, avoiding soft play etc as it's half term here.

They would love dens....
