Countdown to Christmas

 I wanted to do something fun for the kids leading up to Christmas and this was what I came up with. Next year I will be more colorful! :) I had to get it together quick so the white index cards were what I used. Maybe you can see the "tree".
I took an index card and folded it in half. Then on the inside I wrote something fun for us to do each day as a family, then tape it shut. Then on the front folded side I wrote each day and the child's name who would open that days card. On the back side of the folded card I wrote a scripture about the Christmas story to be read when the card is opened. The kids are loving it!! They get so excited to see what the next day is!

Some of the things I included for us to do are....
*Read a Christmas book
*Watch a Christmas movie
*Bake goodies and give to a family
*Drink hot chocolate around the Chirstmas tree while telling about Chirstmas memories
*Sing Christmas carols
*Make gingerbread houses
*Pray for others to know Jesus in a personal relationship this Christmas
*Give a piece of "Christmas Chocolate" to another family member and tell them why they are special

Hope this helps to inspire others to celebrate the True meaning of Christmas....JESUS!!!!!!
