Snow That Sticks
It is almost officially winter and there is still no snow. Brother and sister think about ways they can encourage the snow to come — and in addition to a snow dance and song, they make lots of paper snowflakes. When they bring the paper flakes outside, they are dazzled by what happens.

Sparkle Crafts: Stitched Snowflakes and Cranberry Garlands
Craft your own handmade cranberry garland using berries and wheat-O's. And with some simple materials – a bit of yarn, some recycled cardboard – you can make your own snowflakes that stick around even if there’s none out your door.
Sparkle Kitchen: Butternut Squash Chili
My favorite chili involves lots of canned goods, which are so much easier to keep on hand. It's also nearly vegetarian, with a butternut squash standing in admirably for the typical beef. Pop these ingredients into a pot, give it a stir, and enjoy the warm smell of it bubbling away!
