If you live near a golf course, chances are good that you get golf balls in your yard. Ask the golf course if they buy back golf balls. It's a great way to make money! Just be sure to ask a parent for permission first.

Salad with a Smile
The next time you make a salad, put a face on top to make it look funny. Use tomatoes, cheese, celery, broccoli, and other toppings to make a smiley face. It'll make you smile, too!
Do you love dogs or cats? Then here's a cute decorating idea for your room. Use scissors to cut a large circle and three small circles from colored paper-presto, you have a paw print! Make as many as you like, and put them up on your bedroom wall. Now your room is full of paw prints!
My little brother loves to write stories, but sometimes he runs out of ideas--that's when we play this game. Provide three jars labeled 'Beginning,' 'Middle,' and 'End.' Write story ideas on slips of paper that will fit into each category. For example, 'Beginning: George makes a time machine,' 'Middle: But the party ended up being a disaster,' and 'End: A puppy ended up rescuing him.' The child will pick one slip from each jar and make up a story using the three ideas. Fun!
This is a great group game. Have three to seven friends sit in a circle. Play Duck, Duck, Goose but instead, say, 'Cake, Cake, Cupcake!'
Make a cute shirt to wear to bed. On a plain T-shirt, use fabric paint to write your name or create some doodles. Be sure to put a piece of cardboard inside the shirt so that the paint doesn't bleed through to the back. Wait for the paint to dry overnight before you remove the cardboard. This is a great activity for sleepovers!
If you're having a tough time staying organized, don't cram all your papers into your backpack. Instead, use a folder for each subject.
