Yes, I know it is not even Thanksgiving and I am already talking Christmas. Actually, I am talking Advent.
I just came across a cool thing for parents and kids in preparation for Christmas, during Advent. With so much hoopla about shopping, presents, and Santa Claus, my husband and I always wonder what else we could be doing to help focus our family’s attention on the spiritual preparation of Christ’s birth.
Aha…this super cool kid’s advent chain appears like it could really help this year in our effort!
Lisa Hendey’s website provides a printable advent chain to make with your kids. Every day in Advent there is an activity or a special intention to help steer the focus on what is really important during the Christmas season. And don’t be fooled…this can be a tool that everyone in the family benefits from, not just those under age:)
