Here’s a simple craft “Nana” did with my children. Cut the pumpkin pie out of orange and yellow construction paper and glue to your card. Cut small orange tissue paper pieces and have the kids glue the tissue paper onto the pie. Top off your pumpkin pie with a dollop of white tissue paper “whipped cream.” My oldest cut out the paper and wrote “Happy Thanksgiving” and my youngest glued the tissue paper down so everyone helped make the craft.
I wanted to add something different to our stair garland and saw a few ideas on Pinterst.com and Etsy.com. I went to Hobby Lobby and got these fantastic little gift bags in Chevron print for .49 a piece. I found the stamped numbers on Etsy. (I will include the link below.) I put little treats like smarties, little bags of goldfish crackers and cookies and a different Christmas activity we can do each day. So far, we’ve had a great time counting down to Santa! Today’s activity was to make a snowman craft.
Advent Calendar day numbers are from Gnomenotes on Etsy.com.
