Here’s an idea for family home evening. What other ideas can you come up with?

cookies and a lantern made out of a cup

Light the Night

Read “Christmas by Candlelight” on page 4. Make this craft to remind you that no matter how dark it gets, Jesus is our light! (See Mosiah 16:9.)

paper cup

hole punch or sharp pencil

small battery-powered light or glow stick

  1. Use the hole punch or pencil to make holes all around the cup. Poke holes in the bottom too, or cut it out entirely (ask an adult for help).

  2. Decorate your cup however you want. Then put the light or glow stick under the cup.

  3. Turn off the lights and see your lantern glow!

Christmas Crinkle Cookies

Make this holiday treat with your family. Be sure to get an adult’s help.

1 box red velvet cake mix

1/2 cup vegetable oil

2 eggs

powdered sugar

  1. In a large bowl, combine the cake mix, oil, and eggs.

  2. Roll the dough into balls and let them sit to dry for a few minutes. Then roll each ball in powdered sugar until it’s completely covered.

  3. Bake at 350°F (275°C) for 8–10 minutes.
