Advent activities – Week Two

on December 17, 2010
Froglet’s wrapping paper made at school…
“Mummy, it has to go on the wall, Miss said so!”

Scones, strawberry and rhubarb jam…
with our advent “wreath” behind them…

We give thanks to Ikea for the flat-packed gingerbread house…
and to God for the fun we had decorating it…

A reindeer with handprint antlers to adorn the front door…
although he seems to prefer the floor…

Toilet roll snowflakes, painted pearl and white, strung together for a garland…
much prettier than our blinds outside…

Waldorf-style shepherds…
with misshapen sheep…

And we still have time to hide in boxes too!

  1. O.K. – I want some of your yummy scones and for you to teach me how to make toilet paper snowflake gardlands! You definitely need to move to my side of the pond so we could hang out, argue about politics and eat scones together – and make those beautiful garland! I need some of your energy! Maybe it's the teens – they just drain it out of you:) LOL

    Have a Joyful Christmas!!!

  2. I think maybe having four kids at home rather than just two might be part of it too? 🙂 But yes, you are on my list to visit if ever we go to the States. Your little one would love the garlands, it's mostly cutting and gluing. (My husband is saying you have to move to this side of the pond instead!)
