Advent Day #16

Today we made a baby Jesus wrapped in cloths for our Truth In The Tinsel Ornament. Don’t pay attention to the fact that our baby Jesus has a green face. Haha. The only other color ball ornament I had was red so I figured green was the better choice.

Advent Day #14

Today’s Truth In The Tinsel ornament was making a stable. I liked this craft because it was quick and easy. We talked about how the stable probably smelled like stinky animals and Jacob thought that was hilarious.

Advent Day #13

Today’s Truth In The Tinsel Ornament was Bethlehem. We used paint pens to minimize the mess and Jacob really enjoyed making it colorful. We talked about the town we live in and how Jesus was born in a town called Bethlehem and then watched a YouTube video of “O Little Town Of Bethlehem”.

Advent Day #4

For today’s Truth In The Tinsel craft we made a Gabriel ornament. I thought it was a really cute idea but it was not really a craft Jake could make. I think next year I will have Jacob decorate the wrapping¬† paper with glitter glue before I make it into a fan.
