christmas advent Pictures, Images and Photos

The Christmas countdown is on. In my house we do a Christmas Advent Calendar. Some of you have your own family traditions but this is a fun way to bring the true meaning of Christmas into your traditions.

I made our Advent Calendar a few years ago. I used a heavy cotton for the wall hanging and used felt for the pockets. I hand cut most of the pocket embelishments and craft glued them on (for some of the embelishments I used stickers that are for scrapbooking but they were too cute to pass up and have held up well over the past couple years). I put a piece of paper in each pocket that states the scripture verse we are to read, the carol we are to sing, who is in charge of the treat, the activity that we are to do and the theme for the day. An example:

(Gingerman Pocket)

Craft: Gingerbread men puppets
Scripture: John 6:28-35
Theme: Bread of Life
Song/Activity: Make Gingerbread houses

There are lots of ways you can make an Advent. There are also lots of different things you can do with your Advent. Some read Christmas books, some give little treats, some sing songs for each day and the list goes on and on.
