Thanks Giving
November 17, 2014

Are you thankful for all of the wonderful things you have at Innerstar U? If so, show your gratitude by spreading some of your good fortune. Send a friend a campus email and attach something from your closet that you think she would enjoy. Or visit the Market to donate stars or clothes to your favorite cause at the Care & Share Tent.

Get into the Thanksgiving spirit at home, too. Ask your parents if they'd like to help spread your family's good fortune. Maybe your family could help a food pantry provide holiday meals for people in need, or invite a neighbor with no holiday plans to join you for Thanksgiving dinner. After all, food tastes better when it's shared!

Art Appreciation
November 10, 2014

Neely just taught me a lesson in art appreciation! She said that nothing quite says "I appreciate you" more than the gift of personal artwork. Why not create a special card for someone you are happy to have in your life? Play PRETTY PATTERNS at Sparkle Studios and design a dazzling picture. Next, print your masterpiece and use it to make a "Thank you for being you" card. Write a message inside telling what you appreciate most about that person. Then send the card so that it arrives in time for Thanksgiving.

Show of Thanks
November 3, 2014

November is a good time to express your appreciation for all the good things in your life. It's easy to do. Just play a joyful tune or do a happy dance. You can even put on a "Show of Thanks" at U-Shine Hall by playing MELODY MAKER or DANCE SPECTACULAR. Imagine that you're performing for the people you love and make it your best performance yet.

What talents could you share with folks at home? Are you a singer? Then sing your siblings a song. Are you a good dancer? Then cut a rug with Mom and Dad in the family room. Are you a yummy-snack maker? Then serve up a snack for the whole family to enjoy. Show the people you love how much you appreciate them with one of your specialties.

Frightfully Fun
October 27, 2014

Halloween is just around the corner. Get ready to celebrate with frightfully fun outfits. Visit Bravo Boutique in Shopping Square where you can find the Genie Costume, the Spooky Fun Outfit, the Witch Costume, and the Bee Myself Outfit. There's no better time to wear a costume on campus.

Then have a silly salon day for you and your doll (and maybe your little sister, too). Try a hair-raising hairdo, or go for a more glamorous look by recreating your favorite styles from Real Beauty Salon. Remember to snap photos of your boo-tiful new dos!

Feed Your Mind
October 13, 2014

Give your mind something to munch on—play PICTURE PUZZLES. It's full of challenging puzzles that will build your brain. The more you visit Sparkle Studios and play the game, the more brain-boosting tips you'll earn. Some are study tips. Others are recipes for tasty, nutritious snacks that will help keep you clever.

At home, nourish your mind with a study party. Invite a friend to study with you. For a smart study break, serve up some brain food. Ask an adult to help you make fruit smoothies, veggies and dip, or toasted pumpkin seeds. They're all yummy snacks that will help give you energy and make your mind sharp.
