My friend is going on vacation and I have offered to watch her two boys, I have figured that my five would love to have them over more any how.. So now as of saturday I am going to have 7 kids with me... So what I'm looking for is some recipes that the kids themselves can help me with and it makes them feel good to accomplish something on their own. I'm also doing this so that they can forget that they aren't going home for about 10 days. I want to have fun and not think about being homesick... I know that they will be but if I can keep their minds off it things should go quickly for them..Any suggestions would be nice. Thank you.
