I know I said on Monday I wouldn't share this until next week but, decided to share it today so if you want to do this with your kids, you have time to get everything together.
Last year, I came across a great advent series to do with the kids called Truth in the Tinsel.
This week, I'm working on gathering all of the supplies for the first two weeks of devotionals so we are ready to begin on December 1st. We'll be hanging all of their ornaments on our little dining room tree.
Another idea you could do with older kids is to do a simple study on all of the names of Jesus. Just created simple ornaments that are just those names and each day take time to read verses and talk about that name. That is another idea I came across a few years ago but have put it "away" until the boys are a little older.
