Advent/Christmas arts and crafts

This first week of advent in the Catholic Mosaic book is about preparing and decorating - so the girls and I did that yesterday.
I found a very cute book at the library called My Christmas Art Class

 I let Rosie look through and she decided she wanted to make the Christmas birds.

I just have to poke a hole in the top and they will be ready to hang on the tree.

 We also worked on our first bird seed wreath.

Here are the girls working to mix up the gelatin, flour, corn syrup and water with the bird seed. and here is what the first one looks like so far! CHRISTMAS ART CLASS

I used a bird seed that cardinals are supposed to really love, because it seemed to have the most interesting variety of seeds.  We'll make a few more and then I will purchase the ribbon!
