    All children are different, but, if you have some Legos, you can win your way into most boy's hearts. I have 3 grandsons and they all love legoes.

    Match box cars, a big ball, action figures, side walk chalk if its nice out or indoor art supplies are always fun.

    You guys could cook something fun - like make your own pizzas

    Otherwise, if you're just open to what the boys want to do, they'll love you! The biggest thing is to make sure to include both the boys and just be fun and get them to tell you what they want to do....and do it (within reason of course)

    Depends on the kids. Do they like quiet activities? If so, spend time reading, coloring, playing with their toys. It's a safe bet that at that age, their more active. Any game that can get them up and moving. Take them outside, let them run off some steam. Boys love any game involving chasing, cops and robbers, monster, zombie. Spend time with boys, and you'll likley here the follwing; "I'm going to get you captain mutant! Die, Die, I killed you!" Or some variation of that sentance. I know, morbid, but boys love that stuff.If you get into the game with them, trust me, they'll fall in love with you. Depending on the parents views, kids love to build forts out of couch cushions. Let them build away, and if they're allowed, give them a snack in their fort. Another alternative: Throw a sheet over the kitchen table. Your best bet-call the parents before hand and ask what the kids like to do, and plan accordingly. The parents will appreciate the extra effort you went to make sure the kids have fun. Even better, ask the kids what they want to do during the time they spend with you. Just have fun, and good luck! Hope this helps

    ok 2 boys 5 and 7. some games they might like are hide and seak, manhunt, flashlight tag, getting pillow cases and tucking them in the back of your shirts so they'll look like capes and you can be super heros. some activities are baking cookies or making a homemade pizza or getting those really big poster size drawing pads and some colored pencils. somw movies boys there age would like are toy story, the lion king, lilo and stich, and ice age. hope this helps
