For today, Ayden would like to share how he made a cheerful SUN from a paper plate. Let’s watch this tutorial video to see how this simple and fun craft is done:

Christmas is fast approaching. Due to the pandemic that is affecting everyone globally, some of us would not be able to get a white Christmas where we are at. Desperate times call for desperate measures. If we can’t go to a white Christmas, let’s MAKE a white Christmas!

Here’s an easy recipe to get our kids in the mood. Let them build a snowman with some snowballs and eat it too.

This is one of the simplest and delicious cookies to make for Christmas. No mixer required.

1/2 cup salted butter
