Advent Activities: Day 4

Today we read in the Bible from Luke. We read about how the angel Gabriel told Mary that she was going to have a baby. Naomi and I compared Mary's reaction to Zachariah's reaction from our reading the day before. We talked about what Naomi thought she would do and say if she saw an angel.

Of course our ornament today was an angel! I did a different angel than the one they suggested in "The Truth in the Tinsel" (what we're basing our activities off of) because I had the supplies for this one readily available. I cut it out but Naomi drew the face and did all the decorating.

Naomi hanging up her angel. She was very proud of it!

Here is a quick peek at our December sensory bin. The base is cotton balls, and as you can see, we have a wide assortment of Christmas themed items thanks to Grandma Canon!!

There are cookie cutters, mini puzzles in the boxes, a sweet, little nativity set, large and small jingle bells in various colors, mini erasers, a wind up snowman and penguin, and some little containers. I added the paint tray, spoon and tongs so they could use those for sorting and transferring items. Thank you soooo much to Grandma Canon for getting all this fun stuff!

The bin set up and ready to go! The kids like it best when all the items are hidden in the base. I have it set out in the family room for them to explore first thing tomorrow morning. I know they will be thrilled! Daddy will be thrilled that this one isn't quite as messy as November's sensory bin. ;)

There you have our Day 4 Advent activities. Until tomorrow, goodnight!
