Advent cards

advent cards with candles on them

Aren’t these advent cards sweet? We made them during our library’s weekly preschool craft time – one of my favorite weekly activities! The kids needed help cutting out the flames (at least in order to get them looking sufficiently flame-like for their critical minds), but Emma and Johnny cut out the candle stems themselves – and then got frustrated gluing on the thin crepe paper. Construction paper would be more child-friendly, but I have to admit the thinner paper looks nice – and all three kids were immensely pleased with the final effect!
