Ask them to make a list of what they like to do. Mine actually like playing with the younger children as well as all the usual things (board games, construction sets, arty crafty stuff). They also like role-playing stuff like pretending to be at school, in an office, running a restaurant etc - all involves writing stuff, and totally re-organising my house!

Today, one of mine, with no prompting whatsoever, actually tidied away all the toys into the correct toy boxes, put away all the "mess" in the kitchen, and asked if he could do my ironing (he's only 7!!)

Hello my four oldest seem to like playing role play as well either cats and dogs or teachers and children!! We do drawing and cooking and occasional dvds and weather permitting go to the park or woods. They also love playing with the younger ones!!
