Castlechanter Audio Advent Calendar Crafts and recipes: Week One

Welcome to the first week of the Castlechanter Fairy Advent Calendar! We are so delighted you chose to join us. Every day for the next four weeks, we will be sharing crafts and recipes from our Sparkle Archives that are similar to the ones in the advent calendar. If you make any of them, please share on Facebook and Instagram!

Let’s get started!

Day One:

These breakfast tarts aren’t quite the Icelandic oatmeal mentioned in the story, but they are similar and delicious. Swap the greek yogurt in our recipe with skyr for a more authentic taste!

In today’s story, our characters go sledding through leaves. While we don’t have a leaf sledding tutorial, we do have a fun craft to preserve beautiful leaves you might find!

Toward the end of today’s story, the first snow falls. If your child doesn’t instinctively love cold and snowy weather, you can read our guide to helping your child get out and love the cold!

Day Five:

While eating snowflakes can be fun for a little bit, they definitely won’t fill hungry bellies at snack time. These Sparkle Kitchen recipes, on the other hand, offer great ways to snack on “snowflakes.”
