Christmas Advent Fun
I love that it all started with God. It was His idea to celebrate the birth of his son. He set a bright star in the sky like birthday candles and sent gifts through three kings. The heavenly hosts sang songs to lonely shepherds and a tired mother and father found room in an inn.
Let’s keep our hearts yearning for what’s important this holiday season. Take the Nativity out first, let it be the first thing you decorate with. Take it out piece by piece one each day and read the correlating Bible verses and reflect on its meaning.

The first craft I want to post is how to up-cycle Christmas cards into beautiful ornaments. So many tell the Nativity story in a beautifully illustrated way. We use gold trim, glitter glue, red and green ribbons.
Each year we save the prettiest cards to make into ornaments for the next year. It’s also fun to do it with friends and trade cards- have a Trading Christmas Cards Party! Its also a great idea to glue a magnet on the back and let little hands tell the story by putting each magnet on the refrigerator in sequence. Here is one of my favorites we have made over the years.
