I'm very excited to begin daily Christmas activities with my children. Every night after dinner, one of my kids will remove a slip of paper from our Advent garland and we'll do the activity written on that slip of paper. This week I'm focusing on Christmas trees. You can click on anything in red for the links.
Monday: Make candles out of toilet paper tubes to display in the window (this is to go along with lighting the first candle on our Advent log).
Tuesday: Read The Pine Tree Parable
Wednesday: Make apple cinnamon ornaments
Thursday: Make green Corn Flake Wreaths
Friday: Read The Three Trees
Saturday: Watch The Three Trees
In keeping with the theme Preparing Him Room, this year I've decided to leave the manger of our Nativity scene empty until Christmas Eve. I've cut small strands of raffia to use as hay. Each of my children will place one strand of hay in Baby Jesus' manger every night before bed. On Christmas Eve we'll place Baby Jesus into His nice, soft bed.
