Clay beads are easy and fun to make, and people like to buy them. All you have to do is roll modeling clay into tiny balls and poke holes through them. I sell my beads for 5 cents for a small bead and 10 cents for a large bead. The last time I sold them, I made $10!
What should you do if you see a blue whale? Cheer him up!
With an adult's help, cut a marshmallow into halves and place them on a microwave-safe plate or on a paper towel. Put two chocolate or butterscotch chips on each half. Ask the adult to microwave the marshmallows for about 5 seconds. Enjoy!
When you have to clean your room, make it a lot more fun. Turn on music you enjoy and dance around while you clean! It will make organizing your room a lot more enjoyable.
Easy Being Clean
When I'm babysitting, I like to play a game I call "Clean Queen." I pick one child to be the "Clean Queen" (or King), and the rest of the children will be servants. The queen or king will "order" people around and tell them where the toys should go. I give each child a chance to be the queen or king, and the parents love coming home to a clean home.
The Alphabet Game
In a group of friends, one person starts this game by choosing a theme, such as animals, and naming an animal that begins with an "a" (anteater). The next person might say, "bat," the person after her might say, "cheetah," and so on. You can't say the same word twice, and the game ends when you've finished the alphabet.
Make a pretty fabric cover for a notebook. Cut a piece of fabric that's a bit larger than your notebook. Smooth the fabric over the cover, and secure the excess fabric inside the cover with Glue Dots. If this notebook is for school, be sure to review your school's rules for decorating school supplies.
If your teacher gives you several days to study for a test, study each night for that test. Read over the material for 10 to 15 minutes each day. It'll be easier to digest the information in smaller sections, and you might do better on your test.
