I can’t help it… I really, really love Christmas time.
I love the lights on the tree and the special foods. I love looking for the perfect gifts for the people I care about. I love the music.
I really, really love the music. I love hearing God’s name being praised and His amazing plan of salvation proclaimed while I am shopping at a store that would never otherwise play God-glorifying music.
Christmas is truly a time of peace and joy – not because of the lights and the presents and the ugly sweater parties – but because of the opportunity to slow down and reflect on God’s amazing plan of salvation.
Yesterday, I told my Sunday School class that we were going to make “Christmas Finger Puzzles” for our craft.
They took one look at my finished example and told me that I was making was a “cootie catcher”.
No matter how often I tried to correct them, they insisted that these were “cootie catchers”. Apparently, in other places these little origami projects are also called “fortune tellers.”
Apart from the names, this is a really fun little Christmas project to work on.
Are you traveling to Grandma’s house for Christmas and need something to keep your kids occupied in the car? Do you need an activity to keep your kids busy while waiting for Christmas Eve dinner to cook? How about a fun project to keep restless kids entertained in downtime at school or church?
This adorable Christmas Notebook is perfect for all of those needs.
Do you ever feel like you have lost the joy and wonder of Christmas?
In the midst of too busy schedules and trying to meet everyone else’s expectations, it’s easy to lose sight of the true meaning of Christmas.
This year, it can be different.
If you want to rediscover the joy and wonder of Christmas, the brand new Christmas Meditations Bible Study is for you.
Making a “God’s Gifts Christmas Box” is an excellent way to remind your kids, grandkids, or Sunday School class of the true meaning of Christmas – God sent His precious Son into an evil world to rescue us from our own sins.
Each adorable God’s Gifts Christmas Box includes six different “mini” pages of Bible activities focusing on God’s gifts to us. The gift tag can be colored or sprinkled with glitter and features a “To” line which can be filled out with your child’s name.
