I am babysitting a 5-yr-old girl and her 3-yr-old brother for two hours indoors this Friday. What can I bring to keep them entertained?

I am creative but have less experience with so young of an age range. It is also tricky for me to assume a common interest since they are of different genders. They are fairly energetic, smart kids, but might have a potential towards restlessness. Ideally I'd like to pick up something that will 1) hold their attention, 2) won't make an extreme mess (though a little is probably ok), 3) won't cost me a lot.
Ideas? :) Thank you in advance!
