The kids' holiday schedule

at the risk of sounding like a military school head master, here is the holiday schedule for my kids:

Time Activity
8:00 - 8:30 Wake up, brush teeth, shower, dress, make the bed
8:30 - 9:00 Have breakfast
9:00 - 9:30 Clean-up after breakfast, arrange shoes
9:30 - 10:30 Math Exercises
10:30 - 11:30 Ilham/Ihsan play PS2
11:30 - 12:30 Ihsan/Ilham play PS2
12:30 - 1:30 Lunch, clean-up after lunch
1:30 - 3:00 Reading, Jigsaw puzzles, Arts&Crafts or Baking
3:00 - 3:30 Ilham/Ihsan play PS2
3:30 - 4:00 Ihsan/Ilham play PS2
4:00 - 5:30 Play outside
5:30 - 6:00 Shower, dress
6:00 - 7:00 Watch TV
7:00 - 8:00 Dinner, clean-up after dinner
8:00 - 9:00 Free activitity (aside from PS2)
9:00 - ? Time for Bed

I think that works out well.. I can cook lunch while they play PS2 and cook dinner while they play outside. I'll find an activity that requires minimum supervision for 1pm to 3pm on Wednesday (coz that's when Americ@n Id0l is on).
The schedule is not set in stone afterall.. I am willing to make compromises..
Now I just need to come up with acitivities for the 1:30pm to 3pm slot..
Today I was thinking of having them draw pictures and writing stories.
Tomorrow we're gonna bake a chocolate cake which I'm going to bring to the Tajweed Class.
Day after.. hm.. maybe a little reading. Or crafts with balloons (coz the spider that Anis made has shrunk! so we need to make one to show to lollies).
Wednesday more drawing pictures and writing stories so I can watch AI in the meantime.
I still need to make cookies for spring fair, so maybe that'll take up one/two days.
What else can we do? Any ideas?
