I love everything about Christmas especially counting down the days until it is here. Christ is the reason for the season and so today I wanted to share some ideas for some Christ Centered Advent Calendars.
Stone Path Nativity
This was so fun and easy to make with my kids. The peg people represent each member of our family. Each day, we take one of the stones away on the path and move our family one step closer towards Christ. The people are wooden pegs and the nativity is made out of popsicle sticks. My kids had a blast painting their own peg person and being part of the process. I found this simple and cute idea here.
This is such a simple advent calendar. Each day you put a piece of straw on the manger until it is Christmas time. Right now these are only $3.99 at Seagull Book. My kids loved doing this last year too.
Nativity Felt Board
These felt nativity boards are so cute for advent calendars! Each day you put a different felt item on the nativity scene until it is Christmas time. My kids had a blast with these last year and played with them nonstop. They were lucky enough to have their grandma make these for them. However, if you don’t have time to make your own felt nativity set, you can easily get some cute inexpensive ones here.
Twenty Five Days of Christ
This advent calendar you flip over a different number each day to see a picture of Christ on the back. I have been wanting to make one of these for the past couple of years but have not done it yet. This one in the picture is one that my mom made. I love the idea of seeing a different picture of Christ each day to remember the season. You can find the pictures in magazines easily. There are some easy tutorials I linked below to make these.
