For Advent this year we are simply following along with this book, Countdown to Christmas. I've been embracing the idea of simplifying things, and this little book is a perfect fit for us. Each day there is a short reading, prayer, Bible verse and activity.
Our first activity was to make a paper chain to count down the days until Jesus' birthday. (we are just using ours as a decoration) Notice the tape dispenser? It's one of those hands-free gift wrapping tape dispensers. We used to use them at the preschool I used to teach at. So easy for little hands to use!
