1. Invent and bake the coolest cake ever made… and share it with your best friends!
2. Re-design your bedroom… on a shoestring… then start making it look awesome!
3. Go to visit an elderly relative and ask them to tell you about their childhood… write it down so you don't forget!
4. Make a film of a typical day in your family!
5. Write the first chapter of a book… who knows, it could be a bestseller one day!

13. Paint your nails and add glitter sprinkles…
14. Wear odd socks for the whole day…
