This family Advent Calendar was inspired by the Noel Calendar as described in Noel Piper's book "Treasuring God in Our Traditions." I loved the idea of reminding our family each day of just what it is we are celebrating as we get ready for Christmas. When I learned that the original Noel Calendar was no longer being sold, I set out to make one for our family to use.

I was so amazed the first year we used this activity calendar. My (then) 4 year old was reciting parts of the Christmas story along with us as we read the story each night. What great truths to have filling his little head and heart!!

Here’s How It Works:

Each day of December, there is a part of the Christmas story to read aloud as a family. If you read the story from the beginning each day, you will soon have your kids reciting it along with you. There is also a piece of the nativity scene to be added to the poster that goes along with each day’s reading. Scripture references are included for a deeper study of each day’s narrative.

What's Included in This Purchase:

** 1 full-color poster - formatted to print on 24" x 36" poster paper (could also be printed on 12" x 18" paper as it's the same ratio)
The poster is numbered so that each piece has its own place in the nativity scene as well as its own storage spot at the bottom.

** 4 full-color pages of pieces that fit into a nativity scene - formatted for 8.5" x 11" paper
Each of the 25 pieces are hand-drawn, hand-colored and digitally edited. (If you print the poster on 12" x 18" paper, you will need to scale the pieces accordingly to have them fit on the smaller poster.)

** Assembly instructions/tips

** Daily readings with Bible references

One of the needed supplies for assembling this calendar is Velcro. As a digital purchase, Velcro is obviously not included. I do have self-mating Dual Lock Velcro dots available in my shop. You would need at least 75 pieces/dots to follow the instructions as written.
