At my school, I decorate people's lockers for money. It's really fun because I get to be creative and make money, too! Check with your school first to make sure it's OK.
What do you call a horse that lives next door? A neigh-bor!
For a little after-dinner snack, sprinkle some chocolate chips and raspberries on a scoop of vanilla ice cream. It's a delicious flavor combination.
Stick to It
If you want your room to look even cooler, try wall decals. I have horse and butterfly decals on my wall, and I love them.
If a kid I am babysitting is scared of monsters under her bed, I bring along a spray bottle filled with water (and it has a label on it that says "Monster Repellent"). Spray it lightly around the room or ask the child to spray it. It's a fun way to help her believe that there are no more monsters under the bed, and it'll be easier for her to go to sleep.
If you are looking for something to do with your friends, you can play Silent Ball. You'll need a group of friends and a soft foam ball. Tell all your friends to get in a circle and that there is no talking during the game. Pick a person to be in the middle, and give her the ball. The person in the middle throws the ball to someone. You can throw the ball to whomever you want, but you can't throw the ball back to the person who threw it to you. If anyone talks, she is out. Have fun!
Decorating a journal with a friend is a fun craft and a great way to bond. When the journal is done, one of you will have it for one week and write all about what you did. Then you'll pass it back to the other person when the week is done. It'll be fun to read each other's entries. This is also a great way to connect with a friend who's far away.
Look It Up
Look in the dictionary every time you have spelling words to learn. My mom always tells me a word and its meaning, and then I spell it. It works for me.
