So Cool!

Thats sooo cute and cool! Another thing you can do is to have the kids each make an "instrument" out of household items. Then they can preform a mini-concert for you!

MOD! so i babysit for a little girl, she 2. but sometimes i don't know what kinds of crafts or games to do. she loves to run, dance, jump, typical 2 year old stuff. but it gets boring playing hide and seek over, and over again! any tips? also i usually babysit at night so we do indoor stuff.


You could bring toys like dolls or something for her to play with, or find a movie, like I think my two year old cousin loves Barney.

MOD MOD MOD --- HeySmile I am babysitting for the first time tomorrow night. I've babysat for my 6 year old sister many many times, but thats it. Tomorrow I am babysitting 2 boys. One is 5, the other is 8. My parents don't pay me for watching my sis, and its always at my house, so its simple. But now I'm baby sitting for a different family, in their house, and apparently I'm getting paid.I really don't wanna bring up money, so there's a problem there. I started reading some articles on here, and they kinda made me nervous...there's so much to remember! Could you give me some tips for a first time babysitter? Thanks sooo much!! Smile


Hey chica! I used to babysit and it's definately work, but it can be fun too. It's always best to be overly careful and cautious, to avoid anything bad happening. You can be a fun babysitter, but also stick to the rules so that their parents want to have you come again. Don't worry too much about it. If you've babysat your sister, then I'm sure you'll do great. Just make sure the boys know that you're the boss tomorrow, and don't let them walk all over you. As for the money, that's always an awkward convo. Best to let their parents bring it up first and see where it goes from there. Good luck! Smile

I am helping my grandmother babysit a 2 year old girl. Do you have any ideas for something fun to do with her? She doesn't have a very big attention spand though.

That is tough with kids that young. I would be sure to have toys on hand, Barney is usually a popular video to watch, and just be prepared to be active. They have so much energy!

MOD MOD MOD thanks for answering my questions but i read all of those articles and im still not sure which ones to choose! do you think shrinky dinks are a good idea for a ten year old? and like coloring for a 4 year old? sorry i have so many questions!


Hey girl,

That sounds good for the ten year old. They should have fun! Coloring is most def always fun for a four year old. Good luck!
