Gather some of your friends to sell things at a garage sale. With your parents' permission, each of you will find several items that you no longer use. Hold the garage sale at one of your houses, and make some extra money!
What do elves learn at school?
My favorite after-school treat is a bowl of vanilla yogurt topped with strawberries, grapes, and pineapple chunks.
Room with a View
It's really cool to put your bed next to a window. You can wake up with the sun streaming in, and you can go to sleep looking at the stars. I have my bed next to the window, and I love it.
If a kid insists that she isn't tired enough to go to bed, say, 'Fine, but why don't you get into bed and I'll read you a story?' Sit near the door and read to her quietly until she falls asleep.
Zip, Zip, Bong!
To play this game, you'll need at least five people. Players should get into a circle and keep their teeth covered with their lips. No one can show her teeth for the whole game. Someone in the circle starts by saying "Zip." The person to the right of her also says "Zip." To pass play to a girl who is not next to you, say "Bong!" and point to that person. Since no one can show her teeth, you'll all end up sounding pretty silly!
Pick up a book about origami from the library or ask a parent if you can find instructions on the Internet. Make little origami animals, and add googly eyes to make them look extra cute. Decorate your room with your animals, or give them as gifts!
Name of the Game
Before you start an assignment or test, write your name on it. Otherwise, your teacher might say that she can't find your homework. You could end up with a lower grade or having to do it again.
