Kid-friendly Advent Printables By Being Confident Of This
Every year the struggle remains the same: how do we keep their little hearts and minds focused on Christ when Christmas has become such a consumer-oriented holiday?
Enter the Christmas Adventure Box, a kid-friendly advent activity for the whole family. Explore the spiritual significance of many of our favorite Christmas traditions, such as Christmas lights, candy canes, St. Nick, and more.
I first wrote about how we use this kid-friendly advent as a family tradition a few years ago.
If you haven’t read that post, I highly recommend you start there (just click this link).
I also recommend visiting my friend Lana’s site, which is where the idea originated. She gives more detailed instructions in a lesson-plan type of format which would be very helpful for teachers, homeschoolers, children’s church leaders, AWANA leaders, and so forth.
One of the things I love best about this kid-friendly advent activity is that it is very flexible!
Choose to do every day or just a few days a week, spend as little as five minutes or as long as an hour, and if you get behind (that never happens to us…haha), complete multiple days in one evening.
It’s advent that works for your family!
I plan to print ours out on card-stock, cut them apart and attach them to the wrapped items in our box, making this family advent activity even simpler than it already is.
I’m all for simplifying the holidays for less stress, especially with four kiddos in the house (okay, three kiddos and one young man).
Don’t forget to visit The Christmas Adventure Box post for details on how to get started and a handy list of needed items. Once your box is filled and the cards are attached, you are all set to go for this easy, kid-friendly advent that that whole family will enjoy.
Teach your children the stories behind holiday traditions
and, most importantly, how Jesus is the Greatest Gift of all!
