Every week, my mom and dad pay me $10 to tutor my six-year-old sister. I tutor her every day. Offer to tutor a younger sibling or maybe a younger child in your neighborhood (ask a parent for permission first). It's an easy way to make a little extra money, and you can feel good about helping someone.
What do bees wear to the beach?
You can eat this yummy parfait for breakfast. Pour a layer of cereal into a small glass, and then spoon a layer of yogurt over the cereal. Layer the cereal and yogurt until you reach the top of the glass. If you like, add fruit or whipped cream.
Put up a whiteboard in your room-you'll be amazed at all of the things you can use it for. Write down upcoming events. Come up with a poem. Display a goal you'd like to stick to. Or just doodle!
Whenever you babysit, be enthusiastic! If a child is telling you a story about school or a favorite activity, listen and ask questions. This will show the child that you care and will make her feel happier.
Make a Movie
When you're having a party or sleepover, this is a fun game to play. Everybody writes down their favorite movies on slips of paper. Put them in a hat, and choose one for you and your friends to act out. When the movie is picked, choose a scene from that movie to act out. Everybody gets a part. You can write a script if you need it and use props to make it seem like you're making a real movie. When everyone has rehearsed, put on a show for your family. Be sure to film it!
Cut out pictures of things that you love from magazines. When I did this craft I cut out pictures of animals, sports games, and colors I like. Use a hole punch to make a small hole at the top of each picture. Slip a piece of string or yarn through each picture to make a pretty picture garland. Hang up the garland in your room.
Ask a classmate to be your 'study buddy.' When there's a test, quiz each other. If one of you is absent, you can help that person catch up. It really helps to have someone who can give you some extra help.
