Hand-Made Advent Calendar
posted November 30, 2007 by Marilisa Kinney Sateleben
This is a great idea for an Advent calendar for kids. It encompasses the Advent wreath and the Jesse Tree, but it does talk about the Catholic “Feast Days” that celebrate the Catholic saints. We don’t celebrate those as Baptists, but I do explain them to my daughter, since that is what I learned as I was growing up. (I don’t care if she chooses to become Catholic, Methodist, Baptist, or whatever when she gets older. The important thing is that she chooses to be a Christian, and knows that Christ died for her sins, and accepts Him as her personal Savior.) It also emphasizes activities.
