I like to play stars. One person is on one side of the pool and the others are on the opposite. The lone person calls out the initials of a movie. You get 3 hints, and the first one to get a guess yells " stars!" and swims to the other side. If they are right, they are the next person to call out a movie. Wrong, they swim back and the round continues.

I love to have weird jump contests in my pool. Everyone takes a turn doing a crazy jump off the
diving board. One person is a judge and they pick a winner! The winner either gets a prize or gets to be the judge next time. Laughing Have fun!

I have a friend who is home schooled and I want to invite her to my birthday party. The only problem is that my other friends who I want to invite don't know her. I don't want to hurt her feelings by not inviting her, but I also don't want her to feel uncomfortable at my party.
Thanks!




Invite her, introduce her to your friends and make sure everyone keeps her involved and feeling welcome Smile

How do I make my eyes POP? Id like to draw attention to my eyes. They are brown? Id like to use as little makeup a possible. Thanks




Hey girl, I'd say mascara certainly helps! Try that and a light colored eyeshadow to highlight your pretty dark eyes!

I love Categories! I was playing it with my cousins one time, and we thought of all these crazy colors like peach, fuschia, and indigo, like stuff that the "it" person couldn't guess. In the end, "it" just gave up because none of us were going to the other side.

by puppylover1152 on 6/9/2011 4:44:21 PM

 
 

Whirlpool and Categories sound fun! I always play Marco Polo or Sharks & Minnows with my cousins in their pool. Chicken sounds kinda dangerous...

Hey girl,

  I can only imagine how
tough things are for you. Because we wish you only the best, it’s extremely
important that you speak to a trusted adult, such as a family member, doctor,
guidance counselor, teacher, etc. Please take a look at this site for some more advice:  http://www.girlslife.com/post/2008/08/04/HELP!2.aspx. x0x0

Have u ever played colors? Its really fun. Every one except for the "it " person picks a color. .The "it" has to stand on the edge of the pool. The "it" has to call out colors while facing away from the pool, and if she calls the color someone picked, that person has to swim to the other side of the pool. If the it person hears them swimming away, they jump in the pool and try to tag the swimmer before they make it to the the other side.

how do I delete my club??




Hey girl!

    Before deleting it, see if another officer or member wants to take it over. If you really really want it deleted, e-mail brittany@girlslife.com, explain why you would like it to be deleted, and we'll do it. x0x0

i think you meant SHOULDERS???

Thanks GL!

Here's another way how my friends and I play category:
I didn't know that there was another way to play category! We normally only play it with 3 people. What we do is 2 people are holding 1 person in their hands, that person is it. The person gets 3 tries to guess it right. Each time they get it wrong, we tip them backwards underwater. If they get it wrong the whole time, at the end of their turn we let our arms down and they drop underwater.
