If your cousins are guests they may not want to spend the night babysitting so I’d feel them out on that…

…could they go in a seperate room? That may solve some problems. If not, I would find a way to “section off” the childrens area so the children have a better idea of their boundaries as opposed to being in a corner – maybe some gates or something.

I think markers, crayons and coloring books are a must, items for pretend play, and for sure, some snacks to keep them enticed. I think you are on the right track!

We are hiring a babysitting service that specialized in receptions/corporate events. They will have their own kiddie reception with face painter, magician, video games, pizza ,ice cream etc in one of the hotel suites, parents can sign them in and out. It’s turning out to cost a little bit less than what they would have charged me for each kids per plate cost at the main reception.

Also. I’ve seen a few church groups in the Midwest who offer what I’m hiring as a way to raise funds.
