I love the weeks leading up to Christmas and creating memories our boys will enjoy!
Paper Chains have been a long tradition in our home – back to when my mom put them on our bedroom doors. In our home, before we staple the chain together – on the back side of each paper chain we write a person’s name or friend’s family. We jumble all the papers up – then link them together – adding the dates last. Each night we tear off a chain we check out the back to see who we’re going to pray for that night. (I wanna say I got the prayer idea from my best friend Carin)
We spend the evenings leading up to Christmas lifting up others.
During our homeschool days – in place of our bible curriculum – we have a great advent Adorenaments.
I purchased a 2ft fake tree – and every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday we read the many names of Jesus and add the appropriate ornament to the tree. (there are only 12)
For my youngest son I’ve picked up Truth in the Tinsel advent experience - its only $4.99 and the ornaments are super adorable and easy!
Together we’ll be altering my friend Tracie’s daily RAK advent to a weekly Random Acts of Kindness project, but please check it out on the Mod Squad Blog it is precious!
I’m also looking at Life as Mom’s family count down – fun things to do together !
What is your favorite Christmas count down project / activity ?
