If you have a snow-cone machine, you could sell snow cones. Instead of a lemonade stand, set up a stand and provide plain snow cones. When you get customers, each person can request a flavor. Provide cups and spoons, too. Ask a parent for permission first.
Why did the octopus miss the soccer game?
By the time he put his cleats on, the game was over!
When I get home from school, I'm usually really hungry. For a quick snack, I like to spread cream cheese on pieces of salami and roll them up. Very filling!
You can make a pretty braided border to put around a mirror in your bedroom or your window. Ask a parent to help you measure three pieces of colorful yarn for a border. After you've cut the pieces of yarn, braid them together and tie knots at both ends. Use small pieces of double-sided tape to attach.
Jar of Fun
The next time you babysit, bring along a clean jar and ask the kids to decorate it with paint, or have the kids decorate a piece of paper and wrap it around the jar. Once it's dry, write down fun activities on strips of paper and drop them into the jar. Whenever the kids get bored, ask them to pull out an activity to do.
That's a 10!
Get a group of friends together to have your own "gymnastics competition." Ask a friend or a parent to be the judge, and the girls who are waiting their turns can be the audience. Each of you can do cartwheels, handstands, or round-offs. After a round of applause, the judge will hold up a number (10 is the best). You can even give out medals!
Find an unused CD in your house (ask an adult for permission first). On the shiny part of the CD, use craft glue to attach clear beads. Cover the entire CD with clear beads and let dry. Then tie a ribbon through the hole in the middle of the CD, and hang it near a window. It will sparkle and shine in the sun!
Every night before a school day, set your clothes out. This has saved so much time for me in the morning.
