How do you entertain an 8 year old girl?
My in-laws are coming in town and are bringing my husband's 8-year old niece with them. She's an only child so usually I end up being her "playmate". I'm not that good with kids but I always end up as the defacto babysitter whenever my in-laws are in town. Do you have any ideas to keep an 8 year old entertained for a weekend? Preferably something that doesn't require constant attention such that I can get some errands done and do some adult activities myself. Thanks.

Sorry, scratch--that, I re-read your post. at age 8...you need to take her with you..shes to young to leave unattended.
Why are you allowing yourself to be stuck with the job? tell your inlaws or your husband to entertain her.
