Although I enjoy the commercial hubbub of Christmas, I know ultimately it is about the birth of Jesus Christ that makes the holiday so special. My children, who are older, have been raised to know and understand that belief. My younger nieces, who come over to visit often, also know the true meaning of Christmas and I reiterate that to them during the holidays. We've made simple projects in the past, and this year we will be doing a Christmas Countdown with the book Countdown to Christmas: 24 Days of the Jesse Tree Tradition.
Written by a young person, this book gives children the opportunity to explore Bible stories. Each story is one page long and mostly adheres to my own beliefs about scripture and Bible stories. It's written a way that children can understand, and help them feel more connected to Christ. It helps them to see that He's not just some fantasy figure. Included with the book is 24 ornaments, on heavy stock paper. Each ornament has a picture that corresponds with a story in the book. To be used as an advent, children can take the ornament and hang it on a tree for a visual of the countdown to Christmas. There is a small punch hole in the ornaments for a piece of string or ribbon to be looped through. I've already read through the book myself but can't wait to put it to use with my nieces when the time comes to start counting down to Christmas.
One person will win a book copy of Countdown to Christmas: 24 Days of the Jesse Tree Tradition.
