Fresh Veggies for Me
If you have a vegetable garden, try selling fresh-grown vegetables to your neighbors. You can make a lot of money-I did!
What flowers grow between your nose and your chin? Tulips!
Ask an adult to help you rinse, peel, and slice a fresh cucumber. Arrange the cucumber slices on a plate, and sprinkle them with salt and pepper or drizzle on ranch dressing. It's a refreshing snack!
Cut out lots of butterfly shapes from scrapbook paper. Punch a hole in each butterfly and string fishing line through each one. Then ask a parent to hang them from the ceiling in your room. They'll look great above your desk or dresser.
Music to Their Ears
When the kids I babysit get bored, we play 'Hide the Music.' To play, I ask the children to close their eyes while I hide their musical toys, and then I turn them on. After the kids open their eyes, they'll start to look for the toys. Even I have fun watching them play this game!
Backward Simon Says
This game is Simon Says in reverse. If someone in the group says, "Simon says put your hands up in the air," don't do it! But if someone says, "Hop on one foot," then you should do it! This game is a lot harder than it sounds!
This is a neat way to represent how long you have been friends with someone. On a piece of string or cording, string on beads, one for each year you have been friends. You and your friend can each wear a bracelet and add a bead every year. She's sure to love it!
Here's a great way to get organized for your school lunches. First, see if you can get a copy of the cafeteria menu at your school. If you want to buy your lunch on a certain day, mark it with a star. Plan to pack your lunch for the other days. That way, you'll plan to either bring lunch money or a packed lunch.
