We went for a branch off a spruce type tree, you then can make 24 boxes, bags, envelopes to hang from it, with Advent goodies inside, or even one with messages in maybe for an elderly relative.
We showed everyone how to make envelopes, boxes, bags, out of paper, card and offcut material and also from kitchen roll tubes. They can be decorated then with leaves, paint, basically anything you want to make it festive.
We reminded everyone that Advent starts on the last Sunday in November, so maybe to light a candle.
We also remembered the bird box kits we made; we are doing some kits for Messy Forest Church Christmas in December so watch out on Facebook, as we will post when they are left in the church porch for collecting. December will be livestream again on Zoom.
