|DIY Advent Calendar|
"Read the 1st story in "Light of the Lantern" while holding hands."
I patterned the Advent calendar to look like a tree and placed a gold star above which my son brought home from school one day. All materials were repurposed which I love because everything has a story. The door to the right side was painted black which I used as a blackboard for this week's advent verse. (I am supposed to light the first candle of the advent wreath which I have yet to get my hands on.)
The first Light of Advent It is the Light of stones:
The Light that shines in seashells In crystals and our bones.
I find it therapeutic to do crafts, even if it does not compare to what I see on Pinterest. What makes it special is - it was made by my hands so the energy is personal and that is what my kids appreciate.
Try making your own advent calendar using things that are in your home. Please share ideas as well!
