What activities can I do with 3 boys?

Okay I’m 13 and I am babysitting tonight and well its a long gig from 3:30 - past 9:00pm and well they complained to me about their other babysitters because all they do is feed them and turn on a movie so I want to be their favorite babysitter [hehe] because I do fun activities with them. The oldest is in Kindergarten the youngest is about maybe one and isn’t fully potty trained [that makes it all fun lol] and the middle one shall be in kindergarten next year I think. They are very very hyper and messy but I would like to have fun with them while their momma is gone for a long while [I want the time to fly] So any ideas from more experianced babysitters?

I have babysat for many years- The kids I watched all enjoyed my “happy bag.” I had a special bag I would bring when I babysat that would have a lot of different activities in it from home, and a lot of toys! Kids enjoy playing with things that are not their own, or that they do not have. For example, I would usually have a few of my barbies from when I was little, and different coloring books. I would find random fun things around my house and put them in the bag. The kids LOVED my bag, and looked forward to seeing what was in it, every time I babysat.

Be creative! You can make the bag really fun!!
