Advent calendar offers daily activities

Traditionally, an Advent calendar offers daily Scriptures, activities and prayer suggestions to help you spiritually prepare for the birth of Jesus. It begins with the first Sunday of Advent and ends with Christmas. The content of an Advent calendar may vary depending on the need of the person, family or group to include personal goals or acts of service so long as the purpose is the same. | Advent Wreath

There are several ready-made calendars online. You can also develop your own for your home or classroom. These calendars have become popular in recent years, so finding one in the store you can personalize is fairly easy to do. Or you can make one from scratch. This could be a fun family arts and crafts project. Go to our Advent calendar resource list to find instructions for making an Advent calendar as well as suggestions for activities.
