This cute Advent Candle craft is very easy for young children to make and it turns out really cute. They love the little faces on the candles.
A bit about the Advent Wreath: Advent is a Christian holiday that is basically part of Christmas. It begins on
the Sunday nearest November 30 -- the feast day of St. Andrew the Apostle.
It lasts four Sundays. The Advent wreath comes from the folk traditions
of northern Europe, where people lit candles on circle-shaped wreaths of
evergreen. The three purple candles in the Advent wreath symbolize
hope, peace, and love. These candles are lit on the first, second, and fourth
Sundays of Advent. The pink candle symbolizes joy and is typically lit on
the third Sunday. Sometimes there is also a fifth white candle that
is lit on Christmas day and symbolizes the birth of Jesus (I didn't include
this one on the craft -- instead I have a white bow).
