Here goes one story…. Angel was a four-year-old girl. She longed for a candy house for a long time. As Christmas was coming to the corner, she kept asking her mom if Santa Clause would give her a candy house as a Christmas gift. One day her mom told her, “Angel, today I have got a surprise for you. We don’t need to wait for Santa Clause. We can make a candy House on our own.” “Really? Hurray!” shrieked Angel. “Sure, let’s go.” Her mom took her to a kindergarten. There was a “Candy House” activity. All the teachers wore a red hat and they were all smiles. All the stuff needed for a candy house was provided. Angel started to create her own house. Although she was not good at using
scissors but she loved pasting all the candies and cookies onto the house. With the help of her mom and two teachers, a candy house was created in twenty minutes. Angel looked at her house with amazement. She said proudly, “This year I will invite Santa Clause to my candy house for a cup of tea.” ---The End---- BACK
