Making flower pens is a great way to earn money. All you have to do is cut the stems off fake flowers (ask a parent to help you cut them), and then tape them to pens with green floral tape. Sell them to family and friends for $1 each.

What do you get when you cross an elephant with peanut butter?
An elephant that sticks to the roof of your mouth!

Ask a parent to cut an apple in half and remove the core. Fill the hole with some cream cheese. It's a tasty snack!

You've Got the Job!
What job do you dream of having when your grow up? Show off your dream throughout your room. For example, if you would like to be a veterinarian someday, male a construction-paper sign for your door. It will look like someone is stepping into your "veterinary office" instead of your bedroom! Or if you want to be an artist, display your artwork on the walls and hang up a poster from your favorite art museum. Keep on dreaming!

When you babysit, be sure to put your hair back in a ponytail. Babies love to pull hair-ouch!

Keep It Going
This game needs at least two other friends. Ask your friends to form a circle. Choose one of them to start; she'll say a person, place, or thing (such as 'dog'). The player to the left of the first one will say a person, place, or thing that begins with the last letter of the previous word ('grapes'). Keep going around as many times as you like.

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!

Keep On Reading
Read as much as you can! Even if you don't care for reading, try to find books that relate to your interests. The more you read, the better your writing might get.
