We started our Book Advent this past week - beginning on December 2nd. This year, I picked only 15 books (not 24) in hopes we can actually do them all. Weekends tend to have other activities so my goal is just Monday-Friday :-) With that in mind, we do our book Advent in the mornings as our "Lesson" for the day. This allows all three boys to take part in whatever activity we do that morning.
Pinterest (Just a photo) and thought it would be fun to start out with - a simple Envelope Camel. Here is our Finished Product:
Snowy Windowpane craft. Here is our finished product:
Letter J Ornaments that looked fun.
So this was by far the favorite craft for the boys. Glitter Glue rocks their world and we went through 6 bottles today ;-) Through in some gems and life is good. Ready? This was a last minute change. I had a totally different project picked out but just wasn't "feeling" it and didn't think the boys would get into it so I went searching for something else, came across this idea and ran with it . .. so glad I did. Granted, I'm not sure the "J"'s will ever dry!
----We interrupt this week of book Advent due to the stomach flu----
Yep, I got hit with the stomach flu on Thursday afternoon and was done until Friday evening so we didn't read this book nor did we make cookies. I have two "slots" to fill on our Grinch countdown so I'm going to add "Decorate Christmas Cookie's in one of those slots . ..
