Castlechanter Audio Advent Calendar Crafts and recipes: Week Four

This final week of the Fairy Advent Calendar is about slowing down, being close with loved ones, and being mindful. The end of advent is a time for introspection and going slow. Take it easy this week, make some tea and a snack, and maybe enjoy a little walk in nature.

Day Twenty-two:

Slow down today with some tea and a snack. Today’s story is filled with lots of rest and wonderful food. Try making this yummy, easy pine needle tea and maybe some popovers — just like in the story.
