A Savior Is Born! 12 Days of Christmas Advent

Christmas time can get SO busy!  Some years it's hard to keep Christ as the center of the celebration, with parties and shopping and planning to fill your family's time!  This year I'm going to be sharing a fun 12-day advent that you can do with your family to help them to keep the Savior as their focus. These ideas were put together with busy families in mind, so this will be a good way to remember Jesus and focus on the reason for this season without having to spend too much time planning how to do it!

Each day will include:
- a scripture to read
- a topic to discuss
- a 15 minute activity to do together

I'll share a new advent activity each day for 12 days!

You can download a cute pennant flag bunting (which you can print here) that has all of the scriptures on it, if you'd like a cute decoration/reminder. :)  Hang it all at once or add a flag each day!

You can start now or wait until the last 12 days before Christmas or pick and choose which activities you want to do.  I hope you enjoy these ideas!

The activities don't require much, but if you'd like to get a head start and make sure you have the supplies you'll need, here's a guide:

Here are each of the 12 Days' Activities:

Day 1 - Mary
Day 2 - Proclaim
Day 3 - Sing
Day 4 - Read
Day 5 - Love
Day 6 - A Savior
Day 7 - Link to God
Day 8 - The Good Shepherd
Day 9 - Seek Him
Day 10 - Give
Day 11 - Light
Day 12 - Receive

I've teamed up with sugardoodleshop.com to provide this free advent for you. #ASaviorIsBorn

    1. Me too! It's so easy to focus on our selves, but I love the idea to have a visual and tangible reminder of doing something to serve others.


Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment- I love reading them! :)
