We played with pennies and tried to make them brand-new!
I received a roll of copper flashing a couple of years ago for Christmas and really haven't known what to do with it. It came out for today's project. We made these great butterflies with the copper. They are really pretty and we might use the copper to make some ornaments later.
Tonight after the littles fell asleep, I started working on filling up our new advent calendar that I made. Each date has a note telling us an activity, verse, book, or other idea to do each day. Some days are already spoken for such as evenings with parties. The other ones have special Christmas and Hanukah traditions for our family to do. I still need to finish the top portion but I am thinking that it will be a progression through the month. I am getting excited to begin creating the magic!
