Note: Please bear in mind that this is a discussion board, not a place to advertise childcare vacancies or recruit childminders/nannies etc. We don't mind the odd mumsnet regular mentioning that they're looking for a job/mindee (although you're probably better off in MN Local) but repeated job "ads" and posts from nanny/babysitting agencies aren't fair to people who are paying for small business ads. Do feel free to report any you see. Thanks, MNHQ.

On 2 days a week I have a house full of 6-7 year old girls after school. They are all lovely but it can get a bit wild at times. I am looking for ideas for calm activities they could do before tea. Any ideas gratefully received!
