If you have been following my blog you know that we have been doing an Advent ornament a day using the Truth In The Tinsel: An Advent Experience For Little Hands book as a guide. If you were bummed that you missed your chance to join in I have good news… it’s not too late!!!

Amanda is offering 20% off Truth In The Tinsel TODAY ONLY! You will also get a modified Advent plan so that you can go through the whole thing in 12 days. This book is amazing and it’s been really helpful in providing an outline of what to talk about and do to teach my three year old about the Christmas story.

I really recommend getting this book if you haven’t already. You can read my review here or purchase it on sale here. Use code 12DAYS to get 20% off (which is $1) the ebook. The sale ends midnight ET.

Advent Day #8

Today’s Truth In The Tinsel ornament was to make the sun. We substituted glitter paint for glitter foam and Jacob smeared the paint all over the ornament (which is a great sensory activity for him). He handled it okay but as soon as he was done he wanted his hand cleaned off.

Advent Days #6 and #7

There was no post yesterday for day #6 because the boys enjoyed painting Mary and Elizabeth so much that they painted right through the paper and it was all ripped up.

Ornament for Day #7

Today we talked about Mary’s song. Jacob enjoyed gluing on these sequins to a CD and it was an easy craft for me to set up for him. I think it turned out great!
