How do you entertain them?

My dc1 is 11 and my dc2 is 4.5.
This year I'm finding it really hard to keep them amused with the same thing.

Beach/swimming/cinema/splash park etc is all fine of course but I'm thinking about rainy days etc
Dc1 would happily spend the day on the computer or watching films, should I give in and let them? Dc2 is still thrilled by puzzles and craft so is easy to entertain.

Is the eldest now at the age where I need to let then do what they want?
Any tips would be appreciated, like I say days out are fine but for rainy/frugal days I'm stuck.

Finding it very hard, thank you

Drawing, colouring, play dough (yes, my 12yo will still dabble!). Baking.
That reminds me, must teach my kids to write their own Ad Libs. Your 11yo could write & the 2yo could provide words.
