Make an advent tree for your pets

Filed Under: kids, seasonal, pets

advent treats for yor petDoes your puppy linger under the children as they open their advent calendar, hoping some chubby little hands will drop a piece of chocolate? I never would have thought of including the pets in this, but if you're looking for a way to give your pet his own advent calender, this is a great project for you. It only takes about an hour and you probably have most of the materials around the house. Here's what you'll need:
  1. Green poster board (or another color with a green cellophane overlay)
  2. pen or pencil and marker
  3. Scissors
  4. Tape
  5. Glue gun or stapler
  6. 26 foil cupcake liners
  7. 25 Dog or cat treats
The full instructions and pictures will guide you through crafting this treat tree. I think it's a cute idea to make an advent wreath for your pet, but I don't see that this design has to be for an animal. you could use all the same ideas and fold chocolate or other candy into the cupcake liners. Better yet, make your children and the family pet matching calenders. The countdown started Saturday so you better get crafting!
