    Brazilian Limeade

    In Brazil, this frosty drink is called limonada suíça. Be sure to get an adult’s help.

    3 limes

    4 cups water

    14-oz can sweetened condensed milk (about 396 g)

    1 cup ice

    1. Cut off the ends of the limes. Then cut the limes into wedges.

    2. Put the limes and water in a blender. Pulse 5–7 times. Then strain the juice using a mesh strainer.

    3. Put juice back in blender and add sweetened condensed milk. Blend until smooth and frothy. Add ice to blender and blend again. Enjoy!

    Paper-Plate Hearts

    Make this craft to share with someone you love.

    paper plates


    hole punch


    1. Fold a paper plate in half and use scissors to cut out a heart.

    2. Unfold the plate and punch holes around the heart. (If you don’t have a hole punch, you could use a pen to poke the holes.)

    3. Thread yarn through one of the holes and tie a knot to keep it in place. Then loop the yarn through a hole across from your knot.

    4. Keep looping your yarn through all the holes until it’s crisscrossed across the heart. Tie a knot at the end.

    5. At the top of the plate, punch another hole and tie a piece of yarn through it to hang it up.
