My Girl Scout troop made a really cool craft to raise money. First, we wrapped double-stick tape around the tops of the pens. Then we attached a plastic flower to the tape and fastened it using green floral tape. We sold the pens, and people really liked them a lot
Why doesn't a mouse tattle?
He doesn't want to be a rat.
Wrap It Up
I love making this wrap for lunch-or anytime. Spread a bit of mayonnaise on whole-wheat pita bread. Add 2 turkey slices along with some baby spinach and shredded cheese. Roll it up and enjoy!
I love posters, but instead of buying them, I make my own. I cut pictures from magazines, find photos of my favorite animals, or create drawings on poster boards, and then I hang these up in my room. My friends love my homemade posters.
When you arrive at a babysitting job, always be prepared. Ask the parents if the kids have certain bedtime routines, or any allergies, and favorite toys and foods. It's better to be informed.
Unpack and Pack
This is a relay race that's fun and challenging. Before the game, pack two suitcases with clothes, shoes, and a pillow for each. Divide the players into two teams. When the relay begins, the first player runs to the suitcase and empties it. She'll bring the empty suitcase back to the next player, and that girl will run with the suitcase to the contents and will pack it up again. She'll run to the next girl, who will take the suitcase to the other side of the room and will empty it. the game continues until every player has had a turn. The team to unpack and pack the fastest wins!
Ask a parent if you can add polka-dots to your bedroom walls. Purchase felt with peel-and-stick backing from a craft store. Next, using different-sized bowls, trace around them with a pencil onto the felt. Cut out the traced circles, and stick them on the walls of your room.
Next to your bedroom door, hang a dry-erase board. At the top, write "Do you have...?" Every night, write down everything you'll need for the next day, such as a musical instrument, gym clothes, or schoolbooks. This always helps me remember my stuff in the mornings!
