Peanut Butter Play Dough Stars

In the evenings we settle down as a little family and spend time together reading about the arrival of our Savior. We have enjoyed our time of advent and it has really helped us stay focused on the true meaning of the Christmas season. Because the advent study (that we are tweaking quite a bit) does not have a lesson each day, we have been incorporating other books into our family time. During the day though Seth and I have been trying to do some crafts and activities that are related to what we are talking about. For instance, one of our nights we focused on the star and the wise men. So the next day we used star cookie cutters and peanut butter play dough to make some stars. We had a lot of fun and it was some tasty play dough too!
(Next year I think I might try to have a corresponding craft or activity each day and I love the idea of using matchboxes as a Christmas Countdown.)
