Are you looking to bring more faith (and less commercialism) to your Advent and Christmas season? Would you like to celebrate the days leading up to Christmas in a meaningful - yet fun - way with your family?

This printable eBook contains over 80 pages of detailed ornament templates, daily scripture readings (with links to full text), devotions, coloring pages, and family-friendly activities inspired by the scripture to help your family count down the days of Advent in a spiritual way. At the end of the book you'll find instructions with photos on how to create the felt tree.

Each day, families have the option of creating an ornament in an unlimited number of ways, which means they can select the option that is best for them. From the “I’m not crafty at all” to the “I hand make everything”, we’ve got you covered! Ornaments can be made by:
• cutting out and decoupaging or laminating the ornament photo to cardstock
• printing out the coloring page onto cardstock, coloring or painting, and cutting out the ornament
• cutting out the templates and piecing together, using construction paper and glue, craft foam and glue, felt and fabric glue or felt and embroidery floss and hand sewing
• anything else you think of!

The 25 "days" are broken into three pages per day. The first page contains activities, suggested Bible readings, a summary (takeaway) of the readings, a tie-in of the story to Jesus, and a short prayer. You can pick and choose which of these activities are best for your family, as well as supplement or change the readings. The second page has the materials you will need to make the ornament. Below the instructions is a photo showing the final hand-stitched ornament. The third page has - at the top - a coloring sheet which is perfect for crayons, colored pencils, paints, markers, or any other medium you choose. Below that are the ornament templates for printing and cutting should you be making the ornaments from construction paper, card stock, craft foam, or felt. I hope this beautiful book gives you and your family many ways to choose from to celebrate Advent and prepare for Christ's birth!

Extremely thorough! Beautiful ornaments plus wonderful devotional and activity ideas to go with them. We are really looking forward to incorporating these into our existing frame for Advent devotions! The ornaments have lots of crafting options, too, so something for everyone and my whole crew of littles can be involved in the making.
