Treasure Bags for Imbolc

I have intentions of following the Earth based holidays, surprising my family with little gifts in recognition of them. Somehow, after the wondrousness of Yule, January tends to fly by. Imbolc sneaks up on me, and I resign myself to giving Valentine’s gifts, instead.

This year, however, I’m doing much better. Imbolc did not sneak up on me again. I secretly ordered a copy of Rick Riordan’s The Red Pyramid, along with a reference book. I wanted to make something to go with it, but without having read the book yet, I was at a loss of what to make. I finally decided to knit some little drawstring treasure bags. Every great archaelogist, or child, can use a treasure bag.

When the kids woke up on Imbolc, they received a double surprise. Not only were there gifts awaiting them in the living room, we were in the middle of a huge snowstorm. That meant another home day with Daddy, who was very excited to watch the kids come into the living room.

February brought many heroic crafts to Our Family Creates! Check out some of the wonderful posts from last month’s participants:

  1. So cool! I don’t think I’ve ever heard of Imbolc (and I’ve celebrated a few Earth based holidays). Now I’ve Googled it and learned something new – thanks!
