My friends and I started a business making friendship bracelets out of yarn. We researched a lot of different ways to make them. We also make key chains, headbands, and rings. We've been very successful selling our products at our local farmer's market!

Ask an adult to cut a banana in half lengthwise. Then use a spoon to dig a small "trench" down the middle of each half. Fill each trench with blueberries and strawberries. Top with whipped cream. This is like a banana split without the ice cream.
Hit the Right Notes
When you're cleaning your room, put on your favorite music. If you're singing and dancing, cleaning will feel more like a choreographed musical number than a chore! Whenever I clean, I always pick songs that are upbeat and fun.
Use Your Imagination
The next time you babysit, ask the child's parents if you can take her outside in the backyard. When you go outside, encourage the child to use her imagination. Make up skits and play pretend. She could even pretend to be a princess.
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.
Make a collage that shows off your personality. First, gather old magazines (with an adult's permission), a glue stick, scissors, and a large piece of paper. Next, think of a theme for your collage, such as dogs or dancing. Look through the magazines, cutting out any picture that fits your theme. Glue all the pictures to the piece of paper. Overlap the pictures to make your collage look even cooler.
Set a box or tray on your home desk for assignments. Every time you walk into your room, you’ll remember that you have homework to do.
