First, here are a few pictures of our Advent ornament garland.
So far, we have done Day 1 and Day 2 and worked on Day 3 today. We will finish Day 3 and Day 4 tomorrow.
Day 1 we made an Advent chain.
Macy bug is holding our chain and as you can see, there is a star at the top that reads:
One Christmas night, so long age
A star shone down so all would know
That in a manger, on that night
A Savior was born, our guiding light!
Now Christmas time is almost here
A very special time of year
When everyone anticipates
That night we can celebrate!
As you remove a link each night
Remember the star that shone so bright
And told the world of Jesus' birth
The Son of God, here on earth!!!
I found this little craft on a website I found off of Confessions of a Homeschooler website. I , for the life of me, can not remember it right now but when I do, I promise I will share it with you.
Day 3 we made Cinnamon Applesauce Ornaments and as I type, they are drying, so I will have to do Day 3 and 4 together tomorrow!
For Day 4 we will be making reindeer ornaments.
We are having so much fun doing this and I think our tree with our homemade ornaments will be our best Christmas tree to date!!!
