For the Kiddos!
:) This lady set up 4 station rotations for her kids that last 30 minutes each. (computer, movie, reading and piano) They can do these all independently so mom can have some "Free" time to do what she needs to do. I think it'd be fun to add some other stations- legos, playdough, craft, games, etc. Sounds like a sanity saver to me!

Frisbee toss game I made one for our kids and they loved it. I had one basket and put numbers on the bottom of the frisbees. A couple 5's , a 10 and then a 5+1. If they get the 5+1 in the basket then they could choose to take 6 points or take another throw with any one of the frisbees.
