Activity for the first Sunday of Advent

Yesterday was the first Sunday of Advent and I wanted to do something different and more Catholic-flavored as we decorated our house.  I decided to make a big Advent Candle display in the boys' bedroom window, which faces the street. 

It was pretty easy!  All I had to do was cut four rectangles out of construction paper (3 purple and 1 pink) and four flames out of yellow construction paper.  I got them laminated at Lakeshore (yay for the teachers' discount for homeschoolers!!!) so they'd be a little more durable and hopefully be usable for next year.  I taped the four rectangles to the window and one of the flames over the first one, so it looks like one candle of an Advent wreath has been lit.  My husband was skeptical, but it ended up looking pretty cool.

  1. I guess I should mention that the construction paper I had used was pretty faded by Christmas. I'll use the reverse side for this Advent, then I'll have to remake them for next year.
