Advent Wreaths- Crafts, Activities, and More!

Having an Advent wreath is a great Catholic tradition! Here are some fun Advent wreath crafts, activities, and other fun resources for kids. (You can find a printable Blessing of the Advent Wreath here.)

Advent Wreath Craft– This one is fun and easy, and doesn’t involve any glue, so in a classroom, it can be taken home immediately without needing time to dry.

Here’s a fun Advent snack- an edible Advent wreath! (I made this as an attempt to hold off on “Christmas” treats during Advent. It worked!) 😉

Here is an Advent wreath craft you can make with kids that can actually function as a real Advent wreath in their home! (I have made these when teaching classes at CCD or Catholic co-ops and the parents are always thrilled.)

This post is one of my favorites! I teach you how to paint your own pillar candles pink and purple using melted crayons. The reason I love this so much is because pink and purple pillar candles are so expensive, but you can get cheap white ones at the Dollar Tree. So you can save like, $20 doing this yourself, and plus, you don’t have to go searching for the right colors.

Be sure to check out this Advent song for kids! Super cute, easy to sing, and it has hand motions! A simple way to get the true meaning of Advent across to the little ones. 🙂

  2. Where did you find the purple and pink birthday candles? I wanted to make advent wreaths out of clay with my class, but I couldn’t find the candles and checked so many stores!
