Kidzworld Kitchen: Babysitter Extraordinaire

I’m sure that earning some extra cash this summer would really come in handy for vacation spending, trips to the mall with your friends and splurging on those killer jeans for back to school.  Babysitting is always a good way to make extra money and can also be really fun.

The trick to great babysitting is to keep the kids occupied and have some projects planned to keep their minds off of mischief. Homemade playdough is a fun project that requires everyday ingredients everyone has in their kitchen. Whip up a batch and let the kids help with measuring and choosing colours, then they’ll play away for hours! Another idea to get you all outdoors in the sunshine is a good old lemonade stand. This recipe is so tasty and authentic it’ll have the adults in the neighborhood lining up too. Finally, having fun in the sun can get pretty tiring so why not perk up with some healthy, refreshing frozen yogurt fruit pops. These great ideas will have parents and kids both begging for you to babysit again soon.
