I love to give home-baked treats as holiday gifts—especially because I enjoy baking so much. One of my favorite things about making holiday goodies is having friends and family around to help out. There's nothing cozier than nibbling fresh-from-the-oven treats and sipping hot cocoa with your best buds. This holiday season plan a baking party with people you love. Being together is half the fun!
For baking fun at Innerstar U, play CUPCAKE CRAZY or BAKE SALE at Star Student Center.

The holidays are meant to be spent relaxing with relatives. Help make the most of your family time by studying up on the subject. Read A Smart Girl's Guide to Understanding Her Family to learn how to have better relationships with people in your family. For a peek at this title, visit BORROW A BOOK at Starlight Library. Read it and you'll be ready for the best holiday season ever!
Fresh Air Fun
November 25, 2013
When cool weather comes, it's nice to stay indoors some of the time—but not ALL of the time. Once in a while you need to get outside for some fresh air fun. Go for a walk or ride your bike to appreciate the beauty of the season. Ask someone in your family to join you. Just be sure to dress for the weather. While you're out, notice the natural world around you. Can you spot any wild animals? Do you see colorful leaves, intricate frost patterns, or sparkling snow?
If you're not able to get out, experience the great outdoors by playing HIKE & SEEK at Blue Sky Nature Center, or go for a spin playing SPECIAL DELIVERY at Five-Points Plaza.

To stay healthy, humans—and horses—need exercise year-round. Help the horses at Rising Star Stables stay in shape by playing JUMP FOR GOLD throughout the holiday season.
Do you "horse around" outside to keep fit? Maybe you enjoy horseback riding. Or perhaps you prefer to ride a "two-wheeled horse" (a bike) instead. Maybe you'd rather grab a basketball and a friend for a game of HORSE. Think of an outdoor activity that gets you moving and invite a friend to horse around with you.

The weather is getting chilly, so I've started looking for cozy clothes. I found some sweet sweaters and cute coats at the stores in Shopping Square. Check out the Frosty Isle Sweater and the Puffy Jacket at Casual Closet. They'll keep you warm—and looking good—until springtime.
Layering your cozy clothes is a great way to stay comfortable in chilly weather. You can add a layer when you need to warm up and take one off when you want to cool down. Layered looks are fun to put together, too. You can mix and match long-sleeved tees, short-sleeved tees, hoodies, cardigans, leggings, skirts, jeans and vests to create interesting combinations that are all your own.

The temperature is dropping, but as long as Starfire Lake isn't frozen, you'll find me rowing with friends in the STARFIRE REGATTA. Rowing is a terrific outdoor workout and it's a nice way to get "team time." I love being on a team because my teammates are so helpful and encouraging. The support we give one another helps us be our best.
What group sports do you enjoy? Does a game of touch football or disc golf or a relay race sound like fun to you? If so, get your family and friends together for some team time of your own.
