Advent - Day 7

My boys at the candy store
We have a local candy store here that is great, cool, neat-o!!!  Its name is Sweet Pete's; they offer a candy cane pull.  You actually get to make your own candy canes from start to finish.  We went with 5 other families today for our advent activity of making candy canes.  If you want to know more about Sweet Pete's, click {here}.

At the store, the shop worker read, The Legend of the Candy Cane.

It's a great read with Christian meaning for the candy cane (staff shape, "J" shape, red & white colors, meaning of stripes).

A great time was had by all...the pictures speak louder than words on this one.

Some of the kids in our group

Mr. Pete adding the corn syrup for the canes.

Mr. Pete after he had worked the candy.  We picked grape flavored canes so he is adding the purple stripes to the canes.

And the first candy cane is made....WOW! 

The kids hard at work in making their candy canes -- and they each made a lot!!

Brewer even shaped his canes to spell his name.
