With two 11-yr olds visiting - love you, my nephews, when boredom strikes what works for them and 4 yr olds? ... A free-for-all with materials provided by our ever interesting recycling bin. This combined with scissors, felt markers, dot paints and glue keep them all busy. C made a "hat" with a toilet paper roll and pom-poms?!? The older boys opted for bird houses/traps --maybe inspired by our Sunday visitors last week? E worked on some robots.
