Make S'more Money!
If you want to make some extra cash, make a s'mores kit. Start with a pretty container and put in graham crackers, chocolate pieces, and marshmallows. Ask your family members, friends, and neighbors if they would like to buy kits. Charge $2 for each kit.
What did the pencil say to the other pencil? Write on!
Smear chocolate hazelnut spread onto a tortilla. Use a butter knife to cut a banana into slices, and put the banana slices into the tortilla. Ask an adult to heat in the microwave for a few seconds. Fold up the tortilla, and enjoy the gooey chocolate treat.
Display Your Cards
If you have greeting cards or birthday cards you'd like to display, tape them together (the top of one card to the bottom of another card) and hang them on your dresser, closet door, or wall.
My little brother loves to write stories, but sometimes he runs out of ideas--that's when we play this game. Provide three jars labeled 'Beginning,' 'Middle,' and 'End.' Write story ideas on slips of paper that will fit into each category. For example, 'Beginning: George makes a time machine,' 'Middle: But the party ended up being a disaster,' and 'End: A puppy ended up rescuing him.' The child will pick one slip from each jar and make up a story using the three ideas. Fun!
Gather up a few friends and have a pretend talk show! Start by choosing a host and a guest. Have the host ask questions such as, 'What did you do today?' or silly questions such as, 'What was the first word you said today?' Have fun and a lot of laughs!
Make a plain pen look more interesting. One way is to wrap the pen in colorful, patterned duct tape. Another way is to wrap a piece of ribbon around the pen. Cut off any excess ribbon and use clear tape to secure the ends. I hope you like your new pen!
Learn by Letters
I memorize things using mnemonic (nem-on-ick) devices. Mnemoic devices are memory aids in which each letter stands for another word. For example, HOMES can be used to remember the five Great Lakes- Huron, Ontario, Michigan, Erie, and Superior.
