Advent Activity - Candy Canes Part II

I have been sick today. It's really no fun. At all. I spent most of the day lying on the couch while the girls played quietly. When Adam got home he brought dinner and zicam and I went to sleep. After a short nap we watched a couple videos. Unwrapped - Candy Canes from the Food Network left us all dying to go to the Spangler factory for a tour. Too bad its sooooo far away.

After the videos it was time for another nap for me but my sweet husband helped the girls to make peppermint bark. He said they loved it! No picture though, I was asleep. =)

We also talked more about the shape of the candy cane being representative of Jesus, The Good Shepherd. We read Psalm 23. I'm guessing tomorrow will be day 3 of candy canes if I'm still feeling down. I found a great Candy Cane unit study at Homeschool Share with lots of printables.

The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.
Psalm 23

Happy Advent!
