In the busy-ness of the season, it seems like the entire reason for Chrismas gets over looked. This year I am super excited to do an Advent calendar with the girls. We are actually doing two.
One is a set of Disney Princess ornaments with numbers on the back. The ornaments open so they can be filled with goodies or notes. For the princess ornaments, I used the alphabet and made each letter correspond to some part of the nativity story. Some also have candy or a special note to pick a prize.
The second one is a little house with 25 little drawers. In each of those, I printed bible verses that tell the entire story of Jesus' birth.
It didn't take me long to do, and the verses in the little house were actually found on the internet so I just had to print, cut and get the girls to help me put in the drawers.
How about you?? What do you do to keep Jesus in the season?
