We have a tradition in our family to do an activity every day of December for advent. Last night at cub scouts, I lead the boys in creating some crafts. (I am so thankful that Larry and Jen and Jason were there to help along with Karen – one of the moms and Bruce & Joanne – two of the other leaders)We wrote cards for the troops and also made ornaments for the Chino Valley Hometown Christmas Tree that is sponsored by the boys.
One of the fun activities that Larry was in charge of was “glittering” pine cones as decorations for the tree.
This is a fast and easy craft.
You will need:
- Pine Cones
- glue (we used a spray adhesive but you can use school glue if that is all that you have on hand)
Spray down the pine cones and sprinkle glitter on them. Set aside and let dry.
Use these to decorate your tree or place in a bowl in your living room with some cinnamon sticks for decoration.
Matthew 1:23 – “The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel”—which means, “God with us.”
