FUN AND QUICK SNACKS TO MAKE AT HOME

It's been quite a while since we last shopped at the grocery stores freely, eat in our favorite restaurants, buying in malls, and snack on our preferred meals in some fast-food chains. We stayed home to stop the spread of the virus, stock our shelves with food and necessary things, learned to have fun without going out, pulled out our old inflammable water pools, and learned more important things. I know it gets monotonous sometimes and people find ways and things to do to kill boredom at home. I have listed some simple yet fun snacks for you to make and share with your family. Enjoy!
