If you’ve read this blog for any length of time you have probably realized that I am pretty scatterbrained and start lots of projects and don’t finish them (ahem…). So, it’s no surprise that I have done advent off and on with my kids over the years – I have just never really had a good plan or kept up on it! However, to my credit, I have gotten the kids a chocolate advent calendar before and somehow we do manage to finish that!
This year I found an ebook called Truth in Tinsel ( and nope, I’m not being paid to say that). The book combines a daily simple craft with a Bible lesson for the 24 days of advent. So far my kids are loving it! On the first night they learned how Jesus was born into the world to become a light and hope for people.
Lots of gluing and cutting – my little guy was so happy – I don’t get those to things out often!
The reason I don’t get them out often!
