I wanted an advent calendar that would be fun for the kiddos, but also help us keep a Christ centered Christmas. Enter the nativity advent. We add a piece of the nativity everyday until we add the baby Jesus on Christmas. My mom also sent me an email with a scripture for each day so it goes along perfectly!
Here is the scripture advent called “Remember in December.” Just click the thumbnail below. I wish I knew the source, but it just came in an email.
- Nativity Stickers (mine were Stickopotamus brand dug out from the depths of my scrapbooking supplies)
- Double stick tape
- Magnets (I cut up the ones that come on phone books)
1. Stick the stickers to the cardstock.
5. Then, put up one piece a day until Christmas. We put them on the fridge so it would be in the middle of everything. I tried a cookie sheet first, but ha ha, the magnets did not stick.
It will look like this on Christmas day. I am lovin’ our little Nativity advent!
