“Family Night Fun,” Friend, November 2018
Read “Thanks and Giving” on page 10. See page 35 of the January 2017 Friend to see how to make no-sew fleece blankets. Or make these soft animals for kids who need some cheering up! Here’s what you need:
cotton or other soft stuffing
Fill a sock with stuffing. Fold over the open end and have an adult help glue it down with hot glue.
Cut shapes out of the felt to make arms, legs, ears, a tummy, a tail, and whatever else you want!
Glue the pieces down and draw on a face.
Make this cheesy snack with your family! Be sure to get an adult’s help.
1/4 cup bacon bits
2/3 cup cheddar cheese, plus extra for topping
3 cups mashed potatoes
Mix the bacon bits, cheese, and egg into the mashed potatoes.
Spray a muffin tin with cooking spray. Scoop the potato mixture into each cup and press it into place. Sprinkle the top with cheese.
Bake at 375˚F (190˚C) for 20–25 minutes or until golden brown.
