Mix It Up
I had a camping-themed birthday party. We wanted to have trail mix as a snack, but we weren't sure what everybody liked, so we put out different ingredients (such as pretzels, chocolate candies, cereal, etc.) in separate bowls. Then each guest could make a bag of her own custom trail mix. It was a hit!
If you want to add a little flair to your room, go to the craft store and buy wooden letters that spell your name. Paint or decorate them however you'd like. Let dry. Arrange the letters on a shelf, and you have an inexpensive new decoration in your room.

Get a friend or a family member to play this game. Instead of using X's and O's, use different symbols, such as hearts and stars. Draw the tic-tac-toe grid, and have each player choose a symbol. Then take turns putting in your symbol in the squares.
Leaf It to Me
Find a leaf in your backyard or a local park and put it between two sheets of paper. Take the paper wrapping off a crayon and use the side to rub an image of the leaf onto the paper. Cut it out and display it in your room. Now you have a cute decoration that came right from nature.
When you're working on a report, essay, or other project, keep all of your information together by using a three-ring binder or folder. Doing this has saved me a lot of time in the morning and even in class.
