Tube Advent Wreath

This idea is a combination of a bunch of suggestions from other K teacher. First I glued 4 tubes together. The multi-length effect of these tube candles is a result of using 2 paper towel tubes cut so that one part was slightly smaller than the other. (This was totally unintentional but the effect is cool) The kids painted 3 candles purple and 1 pink. When they were dry we added the tissue paper flames which can be pushed down or pulled up depending on the week.
The "wreath" is a paper plate with green hand cut outs. This particular child didn't totally cover his plate but it all worked out.
