I’m babysitting two boys tomorrow and don’t know what they like to do?

Can someone give me ideas on what to do with the boys? Babysitting them for 6 hours , one is 6 and one is 5. I’m going to ask the mother about her rules and restrictions before she leaves too. But when it comes to fun, does anybody have any ideas?

    Ask them - they're old enough to tell you what they like, and if it's compatible with what the rules are, do that.  Otherwise try some board games, order whatever movies they're allowed to watch, go to the park and play, whatever they want to do.  Don't go in telling them what to do - get to know them. Next time you babysit for them you can have some idea from the first time what they like and dislike, and can arrive with a plan.

    Try to find something exciting to a 5/6 year old that they don't currently do and get them involved in that.

    I'd sit in their room and play with their toys with them.

    Look for a game to play with them

    Keep the tv and video games off

    Color, draw...

    Keep it simple stay inside

    Clean up what you use

    Teach them how to play card games; easy games like War or Go Fish
