Here’s a fun family activity for Advent - make orange pomanders!
Orange pomanders are a super easy and inexpensive craft. You probably have everything you need right in your home: oranges, toothpicks, twine, and cloves.
Tie the oranges with twine and let your kids decorate them with cloves in any way they want. There are no “right” ways to decorate them.
Once you’re done, you can add them to a garland, hang them from a chandelier, or place them in a pretty bowl with greenery. As the pomanders dry, they will fill your house with such a wonderful Christmasy smell!
Tie twine around the orange and then finish with a bow at the top of the orange. With a toothpick, punch holes in the orange. You can do x's or star shapes, lines, or swirls. This is a great time to be creative and to let your children be creative! Once your done punching your holes, push cloves into the holes.
