Advent Fun! A new take on the traditional Advent calendar...

Advent is a time of anticipation for the birth of Jesus. And we know that between work, school, Christmas plays and programs, shopping, and more, it’s hard to keep focused on the real reason for celebrating Christmas. But here’s help! This fun and simple activity will get your family talking, encouraging each other, having fun, and sharing about Jesus every day during the Advent season! It includes conversation starters, prayer prompts, and this-or-that fun. Great to do at meals or on the go! It’s easy! All you’ll need is a printer, scissors, and three jars or cups. Here’s how it works:

1. Print out the pages located here

2. Cut the strips of paper along the dotted line, and keep those in the same category together.

3. Once a day, pick one slip from each category/color and take turns answering the question on the paper.
