Here's an Advent Wreath with candles that is not only fun for kids to make but also safe to light each night in a house with children! Obviously children and candles are not the best combination but this is the safest advent wreath using real candles that I know.
Advent Wreath Crafts
Here are some simple, quick and easy Advent Wreath craft ideas that you can enjoy with the kids. Make an Advent wreath on the first Sunday of Advent, and light a candle with the children on each Sunday through December.
Advent Wreaths are a Christian Advent tradition. Most wreaths have 4 red candles, and one candle on a traditional advent wreath is lit on each Sunday of Advent. Some Advent wreaths have an additional white candle which is lit on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day.
Make your own Advent Wreath using our simple ideas below. For safety you can substitute real candles with LED-operated candles. If you do, I suggest you have a few spare in case of emergencies!
This is a lovely, decorative homemade advent calendar - with a difference! Rather than discovering a treat every day, we write down one thing that we have enjoyed, something we are grateful for, or a special memory, just before bedtime.
