My DD has reached an age (10) where she wants to constantly have friends over. It always seems a bit awkward when they're here though. So I was wondering what kinds of things your late primary kids do when they have friends over? I have a box of goodies that I pull out if things seem to be reaching a lull (e.g. crafty things). Do you just leave them to it, or plan things? Do they watch much tv or play video games, or disappear into their room?
I can't really remember what I used to do at this age. I think we used to run around a lot and play outside, some boardgames, but I'm not sure. I can remember playdates when I was little, and hanging out with friends as a teen, but the in between years I draw a blank on.
