As we approach Christmas we all want to find simple ways to remind our kids what this time of celebration is really about. Here is an example of how you can do advent with your children at home starting now through Christmas!
This first idea was sent to me by a friend. It is a picture of a stable (that your child could color) and some additional pictures you cut out and tape onto the stable picture, one picture for each day of advent.
I then searched online and found this advent scripture reading list that you can use along with the stable picture activity.
I also thought it would be easy to make a paper chain with the scripture references already printed on them. Then as you tear them down you can read the verses until Christmas day. If you google "free printable advent calendar for kids" you'll see there are a number of different ways to incorporate this meaningful tradition into your home. And I hope that you do!
