Our Christmas Advent


I've been searching for a Christmas advent or countdown to Christmas. Cody is only 4, so its hard for him to understand that we have to wait so many days until Christmas. I wanted something that would teach my kids about Christ's birth and be fun. 

Since I couldn't find anything, I decided to make my own.   I typed out Matthew 1:18-20, Luke 2:1-20, and Isaiah 9:6. That makes 25 verses. Each day we will turn one card over and read.   

I want to make Christmas full of wonderful memories for my children.  I have lots of fun crafts and baking planned for December.  I'm looking forward to a fun month.  My main goal for the month is sharing God's love with my children.

What a great idea, Jen! Simple, do-able, a great way to share the Christmas story with your son. I'm always looked for advent calendar ideas that are UNRELATED to CANDY or CHOCOLATE!

Happy advent!
