This Family Believes

One of my most vivid memories from childhood was lighting the Advent wreath each night at dinner. It's a tradition we've continued with our kids.

Here's a contemporary spin on the traditional Advent wreath.

To get this look:
Glass cake platter (minus the cover)
3 purple or blue pillar candles
1 pink candle (lit the Third Sunday of Advent for "Joy")

And there you have it.

More great kid-friendly crafts for celebrating Advent with little ones

Colin made an adorable advent wreath in PreK this week (I'll post pics on Thursday when he gets to bring it home :).

They used green salt dough or play dough to create the circle and birthday candles. It's the cutest, mini-version of an Advent wreath I have ever seen.

1st grade did one of the craft ideas listed on the website link above. They made their wreath by tracing their hands on green construction paper and pasting together.

Our tree is up and lit.

Thanks to the Frasier Tradition Christmas Trees and the Kysely Family for this beautiful donation to our kickball silent auction. You want one now, don't you!

The King Shall Come...
