DIY Advent

At Opawa, we’re using Si Smith’s Advent figures (downloadable from Proost). They’ve been quite a hit, with all sorts of people connecting in various ways and a lot of joy being had as families and individuals make them. Some are even taking their (A4) size figures to work or in their cars.

We’ve blown up onto A0 paper a set for church. They stand about 50 cm high and each week we add 7 more, placing them around the Christmas tree and telling the story of how they fit into the Christmas countdown. Closer to Christmas, they’ll become part of the Great Opawa Christmas Countdown Treasure Hunt, adopted by various families, needing to be discovered in exchange for a Christmas carol or two!
