Just some random ideas

If you don't want another adult in the room on a regular basis, how about giving them an opportunity to help/work on some special projects/special days?
-Start a "mystery reader" program ... that would allow one parent per week to come in and read a favorite picture book
-Look farther out in your curriculumn and see if there is a special event day (for reinforcement)that several parents could work on setting up ... like a pioneer schoo room day (rotations with penmanship; making applesauce; games played; etc...); Gold rush day; math games day, etc... while you probably need to give general directions and certainly meet and approve the ideas they come up with, you could have a very special event - but without so much work for yourself.
-Could you have a 4th person sitting in the room grading spelling test and the like?
-Could you use them to make games and stations for rotations you already have set up in your room

This is a nice problem to have ... I think you can come up with a number of ideas.
