One of my neighbors pays me to watch her dog. I go one day a week, and she gives me $5 each time. With a parent's permission, you could feed and look after a neighbor's dog or cat if she isn't able to be at home. It's a simple way to earn extra cash, and hanging out with a furry friend is pretty fun.
Why are ghosts bad liars? Because you can see right through them!
It's a Wrap
Spread some cream cheese on a soft tortilla. Add a few slices of turkey meat, and with an adult's help, heat the wrap for about 15 seconds in the microwave. Let cool. Roll it up like a burrito, and enjoy.
If you have a blank wall in your room, turn it into a big inspiration board. Hang up doodles, posters, quotes, magazine clippings, or anything else that inspires you. I have an inspiration wall next to my bed, and it makes me happy.
Things to Do
Here's a way to make babysitting go more smoothly. Plan out everything you'll do on a "to do" list, and share it with the kids, too. That way, they'll know exactly what to expect.
Ice Cream Tag
This is a great game for a big group of friends. Ice Cream Tag is like regular tag, but you play it with ice cream flavors. One player is 'It.' Before that person has a chance to tag you, quickly touch the ground and say an ice cream flavor (such as Rocky Road). But you can't repeat any flavors! If you don't say a flavor in time, it's your turn to be It.
Make an empty tissue box look like a cute critter. First, make sure the hole of the tissue box is at the top. Glue two googly eyes to one side (one of the sides without the hole), and glue a paper tail to the other side. Underneath the eyes, add a paper nose and, if you would like, some paper whiskers, too. It's a wild storage container you can put in your room!
Every night, go through each of your subjects and write down your assignments somewhere you can see them, such as on a dry-erase board in your room. As you complete each assignment, check it off. This will help you stay organized and you'll feel accomplished, too.
