All Booked Up
If you have an empty corner in your room, put a beanbag there and throw some pillows on it, too. Now you have your own private reading corner!
I put a toy in each corner of a room when I babysit. This way, each child plays in a separate area and the kids aren't as loud as when they're together. When they're finished, I ask the children to pick up the toys in their corners.
Hey, Look at Me!
Gather several friends and have them sit in a circle. Choose one player to stand in the middle and turn around slowly so that everyone can see her well. Ask this player to leave the room and change something about her appearance-for example, put her watch on the other wrist, push down her sock, etc. When she comes back, everyone will try to guess what she changed. The person who gets it right is the next one to change her appearance.
Make your very own magazine-this is a fun activity to do with friends! Find a photo you like (ask a parent's permission first), and cut some words out of magazines. Put the photo on the cover of your magazine and add the cut-out words, too. With your friends, write articles for your magazine, and cut out pictures from real magazines to go with your articles. Enjoy!
