Kidsday: Stuck on duct tape

Purple, yellow, zebra and blue! Duct tape is so cool! You can tape notebooks for school, make bracelets for friends or just be creative. I first learned about this when I went to a craft store and saw dozens and dozens of colors of duct tape. On the display table, I saw a duct-taped snack bag. I thought it was the coolest thing. I went to my cousin's birthday party and we duct taped notebooks for school. I could not believe my eyes. I saw every color duct tape from palm tree green to zebra patterned tape. My cousin even let me take some rolls. When I got home, I duct-taped everything I could find.

Fun facts for fossil fans

Do you like fossils? Have you ever seen one? If you do and if you have, then this collection will blow your mind. The company Weird n' Wild Creatures sends you amazing facts about weird and scary creatures; some are real and some are just myths. Everyone has a favorite kind of creature, right? Well, with the fossil collection, you get to learn about it, like how long it lived or how old its fossils are. You also get to see the creature's fossil. But that's not all: They also tell you what the creature looked like. One shark tooth fossil the company gave me is about 50 million years old and was found in Morocco, in Africa. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to learn interesting facts about amazing creatures.

Apples to Apples

One of my favorite games to play is Apples to Apples (Mattel). It is a fun card game. To play, each player is dealt seven red cards. Each red card has a noun on it. The dealer (or judge) then announces the word on his or her green card. This word is an adjective, and you have to find a card from the seven you hold that comes closest to matching that word. If you have it and the dealer agrees with you, you get the dealer's card. The first one to get seven green dealer cards wins. The game includes everything you need: 756 red apple cards, 252 green apple cards, a card tray and the rules. It is recommended for kids 12 and older, but I like playing it with my friends and we are 10.
