What Is Advent?
The word "Advent" means coming. The fourth Sunday before Christmas marks the beginning of Advent. Advent is a time of waiting - for Christmas and for the coming of Jesus to our world. During Advent, we prepare our hearts and our homes to celebrate the birth of the Messiah.
What Is A Jesse Tree?
"A shoot will come up from the stump of Jesse; from his roots a Branch will bear fruit." ~ Isaiah 11:1 ~
Jesse was the grandson of Ruth and Boaz. Jesse was the father of King David. The prophet Isaiah prophesied that a very special person would come from Jesse's family. This person was Jesus Christ, the Messiah. The Jesse Tree traces Jesus' lineage all the way back through the Old Testament. A collection of stories make up The Jesse Tree - stories of Jesus' family and Israelite history.
The Jesse Tree is a fun way to celebrate Advent with the children in your life. This books contains a set of 28 ornaments for you. Included are ready-to-read devotions and ready-to-colour illustrations. The devotions match up with the symbolic images. This is a fun and ready-to-use resource for you to enjoy with the children in your life!
How To Use The Jesse Tree—28 Ornaments for Advent with Family Devotions & Images to Colour:
Cut out the devotions and illustrations before Advent. On the first Sunday of Advent, find the devotion and illustration labelled Creation. Let the children colour the illustration as you read through the devotion. You can also open the Bible to the scripture passage to teach children where the books of the Bible are found. Read the story, discuss the question(s) in the Talk About section and pray with the children. Do this every day during the Advent season, in numerical order, finishing up on Christmas morning with the page labelled Jesus Is Born!
**Ideas: Attach the coloured images and/or devotions to construction paper, wood cut-outs, string, etc. and hang on a tree or garland. Laminate for a keepsake. **

We chose this version of Jesse Tree ornaments because it includes ornaments to color, corresponding day, scripture, thought and prayer. It would be convenient if the pdf for the back of the ornaments was positioned so that they matched with what is on the front so you could simply print two-sided. I am doing my own workaround so we can print two-sided. I’m so glad to have both the ornaments and corresponding scriptures together!
Love the story that accompanies each of these. They were a great activity to do with my toddlers each night of advent.
