**Help with amusing children**

Ok, so this summer my neighbors grandchildren will be staying with them every weekend and the kids seemed pretty bored as they don't have a playground or anything. I noticed they were watching me pretty intently as I was doing usual routines with my horse.
So I decided to take my horse over to them so they could pet her (we have 6 horses at the moment so they weren't just watching mine) they liked her and I invited them over to brush one of our other mares.
Well I don't have much experience with children (these kids are 6 and 8 ) so I was wondering if you guys could give me some advice on something I can do with them next weekend as I already told them they can come back over. They can't reach up to the back of our little13 hand mare so I really don't know how to keep them entertained.....any tips will be greatly appreciated

I'm asking this because I'm afraid they will get bored just brushing the horse thx :)

If you have a helmets and if it is OK with the adults at the house you could give them pony rides and lead them around!

I'm not great with kids either....lol.

You could ask them to help you make their feed buckets, and put extra carrots and stuff in there.

The kids I worked with loved seeing the horses eat what they "made" for them.
