Castlechanter Audio Advent Calendar Crafts and Recipes: Week Three

This week of the Castlechanter Fairy Audio Advent Calendar is filled with wonderful baked goods and lots of crafting. The adventures Oscar and Aliyah go on just keep getting richer and richer as they learn about themselves along the way. We hope you are learning alongside them — we know that we are!


Day Fifteen:

Homemade gifts can be a favorite part of the holiday season. In this story, Oscar and Aliyah make gifts in class — a little bit like our DIY treasure bags. Your child could make them to put gifts in or as a gift itself.

Day Sixteen:

In this story, Oscar is feeling sick and can’t go with his friend to the North Pole amusement park. If you are stuck at home today like Oscar, try making our magical sugarplums and this fun ice garland.

Day Seventeen:

Squirrels can be wonderfully entertaining — and a little needy, too. If you have troubles with squirrels in your yard, try giving them a gift this winter with our homemade squirrel feeder. And if you find yourself feeling a bit hungry afterwards, try our bird seed energy bites.

In this story, Aliyah and Oscar are trying to figure out what gifts they can give to their teachers. These candle luminaries are a wonderful gift and easy to make. They smell wonderful too!

The fairies in Oscar’s world make candles for him — and you can make snow candles along with them! What could be easier than making a design in the snow and then pouring wax in it? Celebrate Oscar’s birthday with today’s story!

Holiday baking has got to be one of the most delightful parts of the season. Try our recipe for two of the treats Oscar makes in this story — then make your own Christmas song book so you can go caroling, too!

Day Twenty One:

Oscar loves baking and teaches his friends to bake in this solstice story. Below are two kinds of bread for you to try baking. The first is broa — a skillet type bread much like cornbread. The second is quoll, more commonly known as Monkey Bread. Try your hand at one of these delicious breads!
