During the Advent Season, the days leading up to Christmas, Preston, Callen and I did something I found on Spell Out Loud. It was a Names of Jesus Chain, which helped us not only countdown the days to Christmas, but also learn more about Jesus - the Reason for the Season!
|Our Names of Jesus Chain!|
The boys enjoyed pulling a chain link off every day, and watching it go from long to short! We also learned some new ways to refer to Jesus, like Rose of Sharon, Bright & Morning Star and Friend. =)
Along with that, we colored an ornament for each name, which we found here. Most of the time Preston did the coloring, but occasionally Callen or I did one. The final product on our tree branch is quite lovely!
|Very colorful, indeed!|
And we also filled in the Usborne Advent Calendar to Color. There was a door or window scene to open and color for each day December 1st through 24th. This was Callen's favorite part... he LOVED coloring on this book.
|Working together (Callen coloring my table!)|
|Final product! Definitely one-of-a-kind!|
I enjoyed doing something this season that helped us focus on the real meaning, Jesus!
