It was harder than I thought to prepare for this advent calendar, a DIY for every weekend up until christmas, only using things we have at home and making it so interesting that the kiddos really are excited and want to sit down and create was not an easy task.
So for this weekend I have collected supplies from nature, dried some oranges, rose hip, walnuts, pine cones and some green leafs from the garden. I will prepare them to do girlands but I think I need to make it a bit more interesting, so I will also take a paper and sketch the contur of a skeleton so they can take all the natural supplies and glue thier own skeleton.
I'm so looking forward to making this with the kiddos, to see if they acutally like these craft ideas or if it will end with me sitting and making girlands and skeletons :)
Had to test the girland idea before (also to have a picture to illustrate this text) so here is my idea of a natural girland for christmas.
