What type of shoes do frogs wear?

Do you have a few books you adored when you were younger? Display them on top of your bookshelf so that you can always see them. It's a fun way to show off a few of your favorite things.
Meet the Parents
Parents are always upset when a sitter is late, so be on time. Make eye contact with the parents when they talk, and really pay attention to what they are saying. Also, go over the rules of the house, and establish when the parents will be home. If you do all of this, they might want you to sit again.
This very fun alphabet game can be played with two or more people. One person begins with a sentence that starts with A, such as, "Ants are in the yard." The next person has to come up with a sentence that makes sense with the story and starts with B: "Be nice and don't scare them." Continue through the rest of the alphabet. The first person who doesn't use the correct letter for her sentence is out.
For birthdays, holidays, and other special occasions, I like to make my own treats to give to family and friends. For example, my mom and I love to make chocolate truffles for our relatives. Wrap your treats in a box and top with a pretty bow. You can even decorate it with glitter and stickers, too.
Stick to It
Make your notebooks look cuter. Decorate a plain notebook with strips of duct tape--I like zebra print!
