When you get to 12 the second time, instead of saying 12 say midnight. When you get to midnight start looking for the ghost. If you find the ghost yell “Ghost in the graveyard” To let the other players tat you found it. After you yell ghost in the graveyard run to the base with the other players. If the ghost tags you then you are the ghost for the next round. If the ghost does not tag you the the ghost has to be the ghost again.

A fun thing to do if you are making a meal for the kids is to make a menu of things that they have. That way the kids can order what they want like if they were in a restaurant! You can make one for each meal if you want ( breakfast, lunch and dinner). Make sure  to make copies so that all the kids can have one!

Weekly Tips 3# “Good Night”

When a child doesn’t want to go to sleep, try this: first, turn on some calm music. Next, sit with the child in her bed and start reading a book out loud. Gradually slow down how fast you are reading and turn the pages more slowly. When you see the child starting to nod off, tuck her into her bed and turn out the lights.
