This week we begin our Advent stories. The little gnome in our story is working with his fellow gnomes and animals, tidying and making the forest look pretty before decorating the clearing and beginning some crafts with his fellow gnomes.
We will all work on an Advent wreath together on Sunday for our fireplace, and Bundle Number One will be knitting one for our gnomes using his knitting fork, which creates a long chain (like finger knitting) for us to sew into a circle shape
We are each choosing a small stone to add to our Advent space, Bundle Number Two’s task is to round up our favourites on Sunday. My job is to write out the verse above and illustrate it and Dada is making a little wooden card holder for the verse.
At our weekly Steiner group we will be painting some of the lovely stones we gathered at the beach together and these little gifts from nature will then become gifts for each other, or added to our Advent nature space.
