"It's Christmas Eve, the moon is bright. Ten little angels fly through the night.
The first angel smiles and flying low, brings food to animals in the snow."
Our first week of Advent was filled with stars and angels. It was filled with Christmas wonder and magic. We read The Christmas Angels by Else Wenz-Vietor. In this story, Christmas Angels quietly help with things on earth. So, we made our own angel star wands and put on "halos". We became "Christmas Angels" and helped each other throughout the day. We also took this time, as a family, to think about how we can help others at Christmas.
The star wands were so simple and so magical! We cut stars out of white felt. Then we painted those felt stars with watercolors. After they dried, we stitched two stars together with embroidery floss. Finally, we placed a wooden craft stick into the bottom of the star to make our wands.
My smallest angel, Ava, was napping when we finally took these pictures. I will have to get one of her and add it soon.
