Hi.

I'm Amy. I'm Church Planting with my husband and home educating our 2 cubs. I offer creative ideas, activities and resources to Christian families, to help their little ones know God for themselves. I blog about what I'm learning along the way. 
I really believe:
making disciples starts at home.

Advent Christmas Story

Advent Christmas Story

Advent Christmas Story - Calendar

Bringing Advent to Life

We all know the story but how many of us truly reflect upon its significance to our day to day lives? This advent calendar brings the family together as you journey through different words relating to different aspects of the Christmas Story that we all know and love. 
The pattern of the Monthly Activities are that the Activity Theme begins with the same letter as the month. Well this is the activity for December so all the postcard words begin with D. If only aDvent began with D it would have been the icing on the Christmas pudding!

So get your scissors (or even better paper trimmer linked below!!)
And get Rockin' around that Christmas tree for some bitesize reflections each day.

The full details you will find are all included on the download.
But in brief, print, cut, colour/paint, read, stick and peg. 
Or if you find a different order of doing it that works for you go for it.

You may want to cut them all out in preparation, or stick them all first before giving them to your cubs, or you may want to make it a family activity and cut out one a day taking it in turn as a family. Just be careful with those sharp scissors!

You will DISCOVER that each postcard has a mini snippet of the story with a chance to relate it to our lives now. A suggested prayer and a question you can discuss as a family.

I pray this encourages you and your family and that it brings you much fun as you reflect on your own story within the Greatest Story of all unfolds before you, pegged on to a festive line of wool or string.
