Gathering around the table for the "special event" really focused our home of busy little bodies so for advent this year I wanted to bring the focus there as well. So I came up with this:
Advent using The Jesus Storybook Bible.
Ava received The Jesus Storybook Bible as her three year old bible at church this year.
It is a beautiful bible will gorgeous illustrations and all the Old Testament stories brilliantly point to the birth of Christ.
My friend Erin, over at Home With the Boys, posted this reading plan years before we had the bible and I'd never forgotten it.
So now I'm going to put it to use. :) If you don't follow her blog, you'll want to start now. She is sweet and uplifting and just a blessing to the blogging universe.
To make it an around the table event, I ran to Target and found this Can-O-Tags for $5. I love how heavy weight they are, the words on them, and that I will have many left for presents I wrap, tying our adventing heart to the giving spirit under our tree.
On the back of 24 I wrote the date and story title from the Jesus Storybook Bible.
Then I placed the tags around my "Prepare Ye the Way of the Lord" angel for advent. And, I spruced it up with the pine cones from last month's table and a few little ball ornaments from the dollar section. I adore how perfectly everything thematically fell together.
Beginning December 1 we will gather as a family around the table. The girls' task will be to find the tag with the matching day and together we will read the bible story.
I can't wait!
How are you adventing with your littles this year?
