    Make yourself your favorite breakfast. If it involves the stove, oven, or microwave, ask your mom or dad first and try to have them help you. Some ideas for a great breakfast are pancakes with whatever you want in them, waffles, pop-tarts, or a sugary cereal. Don't limit yourself to these choices though. Choose any breakfast you want!

    Go shopping or window shopping. If you are a girl, a few suggestions are to go shopping for clothes, accessories, makeup, hair products, or 'spa' products/products used to pamper yourself like body lotion/moisturizer, face mask, or nail polish. For boys, try going shopping for video games, graphic tees, baseball caps, or CDs. Don't limit yourself to these though; shop for whatever you'd like!

For dine-in restaurants, try Red Lobster (it's quite expensive though), Swiss Chalet, or the Mandarin. If you don't want to go to any of these restaurants, choose the one you want to go to.
