Advent Study - Celebrating With Family

Today we continued our Wee Folk Art Advent Study!  We're going a little bit out of order, but that's OK, right?!

Today's focus was about celebrating with family, and the comforts of home.  We read Christmas In The Big Woods.  Millie recently re-read Little House in the Big Woods, so it was fun for her to see the picture book version, and make comparisons.

Just like Ma Ingalls, I made gingerbread boy pancakes (just regular pancake batter, dumped onto the griddle in the shape of gingerbread boys).  The girls thought this was really cute!

Then, we talked about what our favorite "comforts of home" are around the Christmas season.  They drew pictures of their ideas with the fabric crayons, and we transferred the pictures onto a quilt square.  Now they have two quilt squares ready to go!

The other activity suggested in the study was to make gingerbread houses.  I decided not to do this because the girls did this at 4-H last Friday.  They had so much fun building a HUGE gingerbread house, complete with furniture, Santa, and a Christmas tree.  They won "best use of materials."  Good job kids!
