Well isn’t this the most festive sight you ever did see? No?
I know it’s doesn’t look great but please don’t be put off by the beige/white combo and the peeling paint which I’m trying unsuccessfully to hide! It’s actually completely marvellous!
This is an advent calendar for young children, which my wonderful friends created and have kindly given to me. Each day you turn over the relevant day to reveal a picture (see the second photo), look at a Bible story together, maybe do a song and colour in the picture. Eventually your children will have built up their own colourful Bible overview! Brilliant!
If you would like to do this with your children, I can email you the teaching guide and the sheets for each day. You will need: A functioning printer or access to one; some string (unless you choose to do it some other way – a scrapbook? placed around the room?); a children’s Bible. There are really useful notes for each day so don’t feel you have to be an expert to give this a go!
I don’t seem to be able to post the documents on here for you to download, so if you’d like them please could you post a comment below and I’ll email them to you. Why not let me know your favourite Christmas song (Christian or secular, sorry if that offends!) to get us all in the mood! You comment by clicking on the speech bubble, top right.
If I manage to make mine look more festive (could it get any worse?), I will post a picture just to cheer us all up! Happy Advent everybody!
