Advent 2012 {Week 1}

If you are a grandparent, aunt or uncle, don't read this post.
(Unless you're really good at faking surprised joy.)

For Advent this year the girls did a craft each day to correspond to a part of the Christmas story.
Usually, we do this AND make gifts for family but I thought it would make more sense to combine the two.
Therefore, I tried to make the majority of the crafts gift type items.
This got a little difficult since it had to be things even a 3 year old could do so some things ended up being more on the cute, ornament side of things but I'm sure the fam will be thrilled regardless! ;)

Week 1:

When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.
John 8:12

 But the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary; you have found favor with God. You will conceive and give birth to a son, and you are to call him Jesus. He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his father David, and he will reign over Jacob’s descendants forever; his kingdom will never end.
Luke 1:30-33

And Mary said: “My soul glorifies the Lord and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior,"
Luke 1:46-47

An angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, “Joseph son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.”
Matthew 1:20-21
