Write a story or a comic book- Have your kids write a story about anything! There are great ways to "publish" it using word or other programs. They can even add pictures.
Put on a puppet show- The kids can create the show (giving you some quiet time) and then put on a performance afterwards. You can either make puppets or use stuffed animals, dolls or other toys. Get creative.
