Kidzworld Kitchen: Bakesale

Earn extra money by hosting a bakesale! Kidzworld has recipe ideas to help you reel in the money.

Is there a trip or dreamy item you are totally wanting but just don’t have the funds to buy? Or maybe you are really passionate about helping a local charity, animal shelter or food bank? Any of these goals are going to need some excess mula in order to pull off, so how about organizing a bakesale?!

First step would be to talk to a local community centre, school or sports complex about any upcoming events where you could sell your tasty items. Then assign each of your volunteers to make a delicious treat such as cookies, cupcakes, pies, squares, chocolates, etc. A tablecloth, labels for your items and a pretty display will go a long way to make your table appealing and attract customers.  Have fun and good luck!

Report them to the principal. Tell them how you feel. If it gets worse contact the police ( I've had to do this )

When your friend starts to talk about you, and stabs you in the back. then maybe it's time to move on. In friendships, there will always be times when your friend hurt your feelings, but if it's being repeated, then maybe it's time to let go. Because some things aren't worth it.

You should if you really want to, but I don't think it should matter the amount of knowledge you and your friends have, because friendship is merely friendship! :) Plus, when you tell them, it may come across as bragging and they would perceive you as a show-off. Hope this helps!

Congratulations on being gifted and getting all the opportunties what your getting :) You knows your friends better than any of us and how does you think they will react if you tell them?  Thinks about if one of your friends told you and how you would feel.  Be proud and enjoy your learning and you will meet other gifted people too in your classes and ask them their experiences too of how/if they told friends. If it was me then I probably wouldnt but thats just me personality. I wouldnt ever get in the gifted group anyway so I doesnt really have to think about this :)
