What are some of the things your kids will do to occupy themselves?

Since she was 2, Claire has loved puzzles.

Ishi has no patience for puzzles yet, but she likes to draw, I have to be careful to watch the paper though, because as soon as it is too full of scribble she lose patience and go scribble the walls instead. She likes "cause-effect" toys the type where you push something and it triggers an action, she is a doer type of kid, my mom brought a wooden toy that is a zig-zag slope thing with special little wooden cars that you place at the top of the ramp and let roll down the slope. Ishi loves to play with that one, the first day she spent an hour studying how it worked on her own, pushing one car, two car or three car at once, analizing why the cars crashed and trying a new ways to prevent the cars from crashing.
She also likes her Dora kitchen, and a tea set, but she isn't too content with pretend play, she wants real food and tea to play with.
I'm pretty sure though that she'll like puzzles more in a few years.
