If you want to make a little more money, talk to your parents and offer to do extra chores around the house. For an additional dollar per day, sweep the floors, wash the dishes, and add other chores to your usual responsibilities. Your parents will love the help, and you'll earn money pretty quickly.

What room has no windows and no doors? A mushroom!

Put a slice of mozzarella cheese on a plate. Put small basil leaves on the cheese. After that put small cherry tomatoes on top of the basil and then sprinkle a few drops of balsamic vinegar over the whole snack. Tasty!

To keep yourself from getting bored while you clean your room, play some fun, catchy music. Dance and sing along while you clean.

Here are some safety tips for when you babysit. Never leave a child alone in the bathroom when she is taking a bath. If you go somewhere nearby and with the parents' permission, such as a local park, leave the lights and the TV on-it'll look like someone's still home

License Plate Fun
You can play this game during a car trip. As cars go by, look at the letters on the license plates and make up funny phrases based on the letters. For example, if you see the letters 'WLP' on a license plate, you could say, 'We like pie!' My dad and I play this game all the time, and it's fun!

Make a book for your doll. Cut a piece of paper into squares. Put the squares together into a book, and bind the pages using a glue stick. Let dry. Design a cover, and draw words and pictures inside, too. Have fun!

Bring one or two books to school with you for fun reading. That way, if your teacher's in a meeting or has to go out of the room for something, you'll have something to do. You can read in study hall if you've finished your homework, too.
