From the Archives: Christmas Crafts and Baking

This post contains affiliate links.

It's hard to believe this is the 4th Sunday of Advent and the last Sunday before Christmas Day!

It will surely be a busy week for our family as I'm sure it will be for you too!

I thought I would post some crafts and baking links that I have done in the past and I hope to do some of these this week during our break from homeschool lessons.  Just click on link to find out more.

Sock Baby Jesus
We made our sock baby Jesus last year with our homeschool group after I read Saint Francis Celebrates Christmas, a great children's book about the first Nativity that began 800 years ago by Saint Francis of Assisi.

Handy Tree Skirt
This week we will be adding to our "Handy Tree Skirt" that we have been doing each Christmas since 2008.
It's always fun for our family to compare the hand sizes through the years and it is very festive under our tree. 

Gingerbread House Fun
We always make a gingerbread house each year.  This is on my "to do" list this week. 

We have also done these fun activities from the past and some of them we still do each year like making the Bua Bark, pretzel treats, and a birthday cake for Jesus.

Hello!  Thank you for your Visit!
I'm Tracy. I love my faith, family and on most days, homeschooling my 5 blessings. When I'm not busy baking cakes for my family or making memories in real life or dreaming I had a housekeeper or professional chef, I enjoy documenting a slice of Smith life in blog land.
