Martin & Sylvia's Audio Advent Calendar – Day 7: "The Tree"

In this Martin & Sylvia's Audio Advent Calendar story, "The Tree," Martin and Sylvia enjoy the apple trees in their yard! Today the apple trees lead them to another very special tree – and the children are ever so delighted.

Today is a very cold one and snowy activities abound as Martin and Sylvia explore their yard. Here are some Sparkle-inspired snowy activities.

Snow Candles

What better way to celebrate the winter then to make snow candles. All you need is beeswax, some candle wick, popsicle sticks, and snow.
