So, I'm sitting here trying to think about what fun and crafty things I can do with my children for Advent. I want to make sure they get all they can out of the season. It's so important to help them get more than just the "Sunday fix" from Mass. I want them to live and breathe their Catholic faith.

Thoughts and ideas would be appreciated!
Thanks and God Bless.
