Following the Leader

Question

My girls, ages 6,5 and 3, prefer to follow me around during their free time. They just like to watch what I’m doing and talk and sometimes be involved in what I’m doing. I wonder if I should send them away more to go play or if this is fine. Most of the time I am okay with it and will talk with them while I’m busy, but sometimes they get in the way and other times I just second guess if they should be figuring out what to do with their time rather than just hanging out. Are they missing out on the opportunity to entertain themselves and be creative? Is this an easier thing for them to do so they don’t have to figure out what to do, or do most girls like to hang around Mom and see what she is doing? Thanks for the insight.
