Are there a lot of dogs in your neighborhood? Why not sell homemade dog treats to your neighbors? Ask a parent to help you find a recipe that's safe for dogs. Put them in little bags and sell them for $5 a batch. Your neighbors (and their pooches!) will enjoy them.
What kinds of lions live in a park?
If you have leftover candy from a parade, Halloween, or a birthday party, use them to make some "candy crumbles." Unwrap the candies and put them in a freezer bag. Ask an adult to hit the bag with a rolling pin until the candy inside is crushed. Sprinkle the candy pieces on ice-cream sundaes or cupcakes. They're even good enough to eat with a spoon!
Wow Your Walls
Instead of hanging posters in your room, visit a hardware or discount store and purchase wall decals in colorful, fun designs. Because the decals are removable, you can change the decor in you room whenever you like. Just be sure to ask a parent if the decals are OK for your bedroom walls.
If you're babysitting around lunchtime, make lunch a fun meal. Bring a few cookie cutters and cut sandwiches into star, heart, or dinosaur shapes. The kids will love it!
My Father Owns a Grocery Store
I love to play this game on long car trips. One person starts the game by saying, "My father owns a grocery store, and in it, there is something that starts with the letter A." The other players should ask yes-or-no questions about the item, such as, "Is it edible?" "Can you wear it?" or "Is it yellow?" Ask questions until you guess the correct item. Then start over. This game is so much fun.
Ask an adult to peel a firm potato and cut it in half. Trace a heart or cute design onto the flat side. Ask the adult to help you carve out around the shape of the design, creating a stamp. Press the potato into a paper plate full of paint, and press your design onto paper. This is a great way to make cute greeting cards.
So Many Choices!
If you have a multiple-choice question on a test, don't just guess. When you make the best decision from the choices that are left, you'll have a better chance of getting the question right.
