I make extra money by helping my mom with a few more chores around the house, such as watering the plants, washing the dishes, and feeding the cats.
What do you call an owl wearing armor? A knight owl!
Tropical Fruit Salad
Ask an adult to cut up a banana and strawberries into slices. Put the fruit into a bowl and squeeze a few drops of lemon juice on it. This snack bursts with fruit flavor.
Do you need a place to store your headbands? Here's a great way to do it. Decorate a clean coffee can any way you like. Let paint or glue dry, and slide headbands onto the can. Display it on a shelf or dresser.
When I babysit, I always bring a "kid kit." I fill my kit with some of my old toys, a few books, crayons, and anything else the kids will enjoy. The kids love it because they always have something to do.
Big Board Game
With a parent's permission, draw a giant board game with chalk on your driveway. Write funny directions in the squares, such as, "Do a chicken dance," or "Hop on one leg five times." Grab a die and roll it to find out how many spaces you and your friends will jump. The person who reaches the finish first wins.
Recipe for a Gift
When trying to think of a gift to make for my mom, I came up with this idea. First, get at least 20 colorful index cards. Next, look through some of your mom's cooking magazines and write down recipes you think she would like on the index cards. Finally, tie a pretty ribbon around all of the cards to keep them together, and present them to your mom. My mom absolutely loved this gift.
