We have our Advent wreath set up for for the first week using this Waldorf-inspired Green Advent Meditation guide– The kiddos enjoyed encircling it with stones gathered from a nearby creek bed and lighting the first candle for Hope.

Its not too late to get started. All you really need are five candles and nature bits. Here is some Advent History and Tips for entering into the season and other simple ways to center in a busy season.

Wishing you all a season of peace and good cheer–
