Until just recently, I had the wonderful experience of being in charge of the teenage girls at our church's youth group. These girls were just reaching babysitting age and were always looking for ideas to keep little kids entertained. In order to help them be ready for babysitting we held a series of babysitting classes. We would teach the girls basic first aid, games to play with young kids and crafts that were easy and affordable to do with children. One of their favorite crafts, was making toilet paper roll maracas. All they need is the toilet paper rolls, paper, markers, glue, rubber bands and some beans.
