As I was sitting at my dinning room table making my Advent seasonal plans and I came up with this idea for my girls to make for St. Lucy's day. After creating one, to test my idea, I thought, "Duh!! I feel sooo silly...This is a nice easy activity for the kids to make their own Advent wreath." --- You see I've had a destructive, yet cute, baby in the house for the past 14 Christmases and I have never had a real Advent wreath to sit on our dinning room table. So this paper wreath is as close as we have ever gotten to having one! Sounds silly I'm sure, but that's just how it's been! I just never thought to much about it till this year!
This Advent wreath is super easy, all you need is colored paper, scissors, glue, and tape or staples.
(or, as pictured, cut 4 white for St. Lucy)
Staple/tape them to the wreath. They are the candles.
I'm sure my girls will have just as much fun making them again to wear on the 13th, too!
Cheers to happy kids! ;-)
