First, he should not be with other children because they could risk getting sick. Tell the friends they have to go home. Then call his parents. That temperature is too high.

Well, if you are babysitting him, you need to tell him that he needs rest in order to get better, and playing with his friends would not help him get better and might get them sick too. If you are referring to what you should do to help his fever, then I suggest calling a doctor.

How old is he? First you make him settle down. Second you give him something like tylenol or advil to bring his fever down, and then contact his parents.

Tell him he needs to rest and when he wakes up he will be able to play with his friends if he feels better or call and talk to a nurse.

Throw him into a lukewarm bath-clothes and all. Give him Tylenol every four to six hours. Call his parents and let them know how he is doing. Watch for seizures-temps can cause them.
