Warm and Fuzzy
Does the child you babysit often have trouble going to sleep? Try this: Let her take one of her stuffed animals to bed and tuck it in. She can cover the animal with a blanket, read it a story, and so on. Once she's done this, the child might feel comfortable with going to bed.
You'll need four or more players for this game. The person who is 'it' stands in the middle of the circle and covers her eyes. The other players each assume a funny pose, and then freeze. After 10 seconds, the girl who is 'it' can open her eyes. Each of the players in the circle tries to change her pose without being seen by the person by the girl in the middle. If the girl who's 'it' sees someone move, that player becomes 'it.'
Make a snowperson from three old CDs. (Be sure to ask a parent for permission first.) Start by painting the CDs with white paint. Let dry. Put the CDs on top of each other like a snowperson, and glue them to a piece of construction paper. Trim to fit. Cut features (such as the mouth, buttons, eyes, and nose) from construction paper and attach those to your snowperson. It will be fun to look at in your room.
