Picture This
August 18, 2014

Get in touch with your creativity! Drop by Sparkle Studios to play PRETTY PATTERNS. Once you've completed a picture, remember to print it so that you can display it or give it to a friend.

At home, make a personal art gallery for yourself and your doll. Display your masterpieces in your bedroom or play space. To avoid damaging your pictures with tape or tacks, hang a piece of silky cord across a wall and clip on your artwork with mini clothespins or binder clips. When you're finished, invite your friends and family to visit the gallery.

Pajama Party
August 11, 2014

I've got an idea: Let's have a pajama party at Innerstar U! To join the fun, go to your room at Brightstar House and put on your cutest pajamas. If you don't have any jammies, pick up a pair at Pajama Jam in Shopping Square. I think the Petals and Plaid PJs are dreamy. Once you're in your pjs, head over to Star Student Center for a game of PAJAMA PILE. The more you play, the more super sleepover tips you'll unlock.

You can treat yourself to a personal pajama party at home, too. If you'd like, ask your mom or sister to join you. Start by putting on your pjs extra early. Then settle in for popcorn and a movie. Or apply a soothing facial mask and just relax. If you're feeling creative, have fun inventing new hairstyles. With a little imagination, any night of the week can feel special.

Dream Room
August 2, 2014

Tired of having the same old room design? If so, stop by Dream Décor to pick out a dazzling new design. I like the new Bright Bunk Bedroom. It's cheerful, modern, and fun. If those words also describe you, you just found your new dream room.

You can give your bedroom at home a makeover, too. All you need to do is make a few changes. Rearrange the furniture. Switch the decorations on your walls. If you have a reversible bedcover, flip it over for a quick dramatic change. You might be surprised at how new and different your room looks.

Thanks for the Memories
July 28, 2014

When was the last time you played PACKING PALS? If you can't remember, I challenge you to play it soon! You'll have fun—and improve your memory.

You can also give your memory muscles a workout with flashcards. Use flashcards you already have or make new ones for a topic you'd like to study. Spend a few minutes each day going over the cards. In a week, you'll be surprised by how much you've learned and your brain will be saying, Thanks for the memories!

Dare to Be Different
July 21, 2014

Hey everybody! Challenge Yourself month is under way and it's time to step up your style. Challenge yourself to visit Shopping Square and try some new outfits. Change your stripes with the new School Stripes and Bright Stripes outfits. Alter your sleeping pattern in the new Petals and Plaid PJs. Or have fun wearing the super-cool Karate Outfit. I guarantee you'll get a kick out it!

At home, mix and match your clothes in different ways to create fresh combinations you've never worn before. Dare to be different! Wear something that makes you feel unique.

I Dare U
July 14, 2014

Have you heard? Innerstar U is changing its name to "I Dare" U in honor of Challenge Yourself month. It's a time to try new things and move outside your comfort zone. To start Challenge Yourself month, I'm daring myself to play a game that's especially tricky for me. I'm giving DIVE IN another shot or two—or three. Hey, why not take this dare with me? Play a game that's tough for you. If you don't give up, your scores are bound to improve.

At home, you could challenge yourself to try a new sport or athletic activity. Dare your friends and family to join you. For bonus points, invite someone new to play with you, too. You might discover a new favorite pastime.
