On Sunday night December 2,
we made candy Advent countdowns.
We made these several times years ago, with our older children.
So, it was time to make them with the younger ones.
To make these Advent countdowns it takes very few materials.
All you need is
*Saran Wrap (plastic wrap)
*Ribbon for ties
You may also want to have lots of self control on hand so as to not eat to many candies while crafting ;)
With the littles it took many hands to help, good thing we have lots of hands.

The older boys were on their own, as they didn't need help.

Place the candy in the middle of the Saran Wrap, fold the wrap around the candy, then tie the ribbon between each candy.
It's as easy as that!

Advent Candy Countdowns
Wesley is our Sugar King, he was so excited about making this!
The boys did a great job!
We added names at one end of the candies, then we hung them in the little boys room. Each night after dinner Elizabeth would supervise the boys and Ruth Ella in cutting their candies....as you know one might want to cut to many for a bit more candy ;)
