If you want to make a little more money, talk to your parents and offer to do extra chores around the house. For an additional dollar per day, sweep the floors, wash the dishes, and add other chores to your usual responsibilities. Your parents will love the help, and you'll earn money pretty quickly.
Where do polar bears keep their money?
In a snow bank!
I like to dip apple slices in peanut butter and roll them in sunflower seeds. This snack gives me lots of energy!
In my room, I wanted a music theme, so I purchased decals of musical notes and a violin. Decals aren't expensive, and they can be removed from your walls if you want to change the theme. Have fun decorating!
When you arrive to babysit for child, tell her that you have a fun day planned. For example, you could say that first you'll color for 15 minutes, swing for 10 minutes, play with blocks for 10 minutes, have lunch, read a book, and then take a nap. The kids will enjoy moving on to each activity, and planning ahead can prevent kids from fighting over what to do.
When our family goes on long car trips, my brother and I get bored, so we make up new lyrics to songs we already know. It takes our minds off the drive, and it's fun.
Make a book for your doll. Cut a piece of paper into squares. Put the squares together into a book, and bind the pages using a glue stick. Let dry. Design a cover, and draw words and pictures inside, too. Have fun!
Always Raise Your Hand
When your teacher asks a question, don't just shout out the answers-that isn't fair to your classmates. If you don't wait to raise your hand, you are just giving away the answer, and the other kids won't get a chance to answer. You could get in trouble with your teacher, too.
