What do you call a cow with a twitch?
One of my favorite snacks is to dip pretzels or baby carrots into ranch dressing. The dressing adds a lot of flavor.
Find lots of summer photos that you like, and put them into colorful picture frames. Put the pictures around your room, and place some seashells next to each picture frame. You can even put a beach towel on the foot of your bed. You'll think your bedroom is a tropical island!
Best of Both Worlds
If I'm watching two kids, they often don't want to do the same thing. So I try to combine the activities. For example, when I was babysitting recently, a boy wanted to play hide-and-seek, and his little sister wanted to play with dolls. So I hid the dolls around the house, and the kids had to find them. They really enjoyed it!
Back to School
Invite a few friends over, and ask them to bring their dolls. Set up a school for your dolls. Arrange shoeboxes as desks. Set a whiteboard in front of them for teaching the lesson. Assign homework, and give the dolls mini tests if you'd like, too. It's a fun way to play with your dolls.
Do you play for a sports team or are you in an athletic club at school? Get creative and make ribbon hair ties for your teammates. Find ribbon in your school's colors, and tie pieces of the ribbon to a hair tie. Be sure to knot each ribbon tightly. Cut the ribbons shorter if necessary. The finished ribbon hair bands will look a lot like fireworks. I'm sure your teammates will appreciate your thoughtfulness!
Listen to soft music while studying. It can calm you down, and then you can concentrate better. It works really well for me!
