The season of Advent is a time to prepare for Christmas. Kids can use this placemat as they count down the days!
The month of December is busy with preparations for Christmas. Christians call this time Advent (from the Latin meaning to come). It begins four Sundays before Christmas Eve.
Many families make an Advent Wreath out of evergreen boughs and other things collected from nature as a centerpiece for their table. The wreath holds four candles. On each Sunday in Advent another candle is lit. There are many symbols connected with the wreath,
including the green branches (new life), a circle (eternal life), and lit candles (return of light during a dark time).
With Crayola® Scissors cut an Advent wreath from green construction paper. Glue it on placemat-sized construction paper with a Crayola Glue Stick. Trim corners of the placemat.
Draw in details such as holly berries, moss, and pine needles with Crayola Metallic Colored Pencils. Draw four candles rising out of the wreath.
If you wish, have an adult laminate placemats with clear plastic adhesive so they can be wiped with a damp cloth.
