My best friend and I had a nail polish stand in the summer. We painted lots of people's nails, and we made big bucks!
What did Tennessee?
The same thing Arkansas!
Put a few spoonfuls of peanut butter into a bowl, and ask an adult to microwave it for about 10 seconds. Add crushed granola, and dip banana pieces into the mixture.
Decorate your door with a hanger for your doorknob. It looks cute, and it's simple to make, too. Fold a colorful piece of paper in half vertically, and at the top of it, draw a circle that's large enough for the doorknob to fit. Use scissors to cut out the hole, then decorate your hanger with glitter, stickers, or anything you like. Then it's time to hang up your hanger!
When I read to children at bedtime, I always end the book with, "And they went to sleep and lived happily ever after." It helps the kids think that if the superheroes or princesses are willing to go to sleep, they should, too!
My friends and I love to play this game at parties. Before the party, I'll write down several verbs (such as walk, talk, jump, etc.) on slips of paper. I'll also write down lots of adverbs (such as slowly, quickly, shyly) on other slips of paper. I put them into separate bowls. Each girl draws one slip from each bowl, and she'll have to act out the words on those two slips of paper together (walk quickly). This game always makes us giggle!
What a Doll
Cut out pictures of your favorite dolls from old American Girl catalogues. Glue all of the pictures into a scrapbook album. Let dry. Now you have a special book to remember your favorite AG dolls from when you were little!
Always take notes. That way, when you're stuck on your homework, you can just look at examples in your notes.
