In early spring in your area, you could buy packets of vegetable or flower seeds and grow starter plants in small pots or trays indoors. By the time the plants are a few inches tall, people will want to buy plants for their gardens. You might sell a lot of them!
What do you call an alligator with a vest on?
This treat is perfect to cool you down on a hot day. Pour ginger ale or lemon-lime soda into a glass (fill it only halfway). Next, add a splash of lemonade or fruit punch and mix. Last, add a scoop of rainbow sherbet. Mix and sip!

When I started babysitting, it helped to read babysitting how-to books from the library. The books had lots of great ideas!
Form a circle with your friends. Then choose the first player to go; she will say a sentence (such as, 'It's a beautiful day outside.') The next player will say another sentence to go with it ('But it's about to rain cats and dogs!'), and the story will continue around the circle. When you return to player who started the story, choose a new person to start the next story.
Make a mini TV for your doll! First, you'll need a small piece of cardboard cut into a rectangular shape. (Ask an adult to help you cut it out of a shoebox). Color the cardboard with a black marker and let dry. Cut out a piece of paper that's smaller than the cardboard rectangle, and draw a scene from your favorite show on it. Attach with glue, and let dry. On the back of your TV, tape on a small piece of cardboard so that your TV will stand up. Now your doll can kick back and watch a show!
When you're out sick from school, try to not fall behind on schoolwork. Ask a sibling or a friend to bring home your work to you. Do as much as you can so that when you are back, you can turn it in right away.
