Week 2


Here's what we'll be doing next week to celebrate the Christmas season:

Sunday: Begin What God Wants for Christmas by opening the first gift box, and light the Bethlehem candle on our Advent log.

Monday: Open the second box of What God Wants for Christmas, and make ice cream cone Christmas trees

Tuesday: Open the third box of What God Wants for Christmas, and read A Little House Christmas

Wednesday: Open the fourth box of What God Wants for Christmas, talk about the true story of Santa Claus from Lisa Whelchel's book The ADVENTure of Christmas and hang our stockings

Thursday: Open the fifth box of What God Wants for Christmas, watch Santa Claus is Coming to Town while drinking hot chocolate with lots of marshmallows :)

Friday: Open the sixth box of What God Wants for Christmas, make snowflakes to hang in the window and watch Frosty the Snowman

Saturday: Open the seventh box of What God Wants for Christmas, and make gingerbread houses out of Graham crackers, frosting and candy (here's another fun site for ideas)

So fun! You have wonderful things planned for your family. What a neat experience to get to grow up in your house!
I love the What God wants for Christmas kit. We had one and somehow it didn't make it over with us to Indo...ah well. :)
Blessings!
