Happy Feast Day of Saint Margaret of Scotland and Saint Gertrude! Pray for us!
A couple months ago, Aleesa McCarthy asked a few bloggers/moms to review her fantastic Advent Activity Pack.
I love her art, ya'll, she is so talented. I have a few of her pieces,
|a Rosary Hanger|
|A beautiful Crucifix|
|a backpack pull|
Well, I'm finally getting to it. Here is the front of the Advent Activity Pack.
The Link to the Pack is HERE!
Now, I've chosen to show you a few ways I would use it. I say "would" because I feel like this is geared to 5th grade and under. Definitely something middle-schoolers could help their children with, but my 13-year old thinks it is too "little kid" for him. As for me, I love Catholic Coloring Books, and there are lots of things to color for this pack.
This is the Advent Calendar. I slipped it into a stand I have. The outside is plastic and you can add to it with dry-erase marker.
There is one page that has a BEAUTIFUL Advent Candle Set on it. And I thought it would be so fun for children to make their own. I cut out flames and the foliage, as well as the Chi-Rho Monogram. You can also see that I numbered the candles by week and the colors are purple and pink (and of course, white for the center).
Here is what the foliage looked like:
And here is what the first candle looked like:
By the end of Advent, you would have them all colored, all the flames on and decorated and it would be lots of fun for the littles.

And please, tell her I sent you so she will know I finally did the review. LOL
