Headbands are a cute way to dress up an outfit. I wrapped ribbon around plastic headbands and attached it using Glue Dots. Then I decorated the headbands with stick-on rhinestones. I sold them at school and made $25!
Teacher: You're not paying attention to me. Are you having trouble hearing? Student: No, I'm having trouble listening.

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!
If you are babysitting a child who refuses to eat her food, give her a choice between just two options. For example, you say, 'Abby, do you want to eat your mashed potatoes with a fork or with a spoon?' The child gets a choice (which children like), and she may be more likely to eat her food.
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!
Ask a parent if you can use a plastic cup from home or buy a new cup for this craft. Jazz up the cup with paints or markers. Use it for a cute pencil cup.
Race Against Time
If you always seem to be running late in the morning before school, set your clock to be ten minutes fast. It's a good way to trick your brain, and you might just end up being ready earlier than you thought. This works for me.
