Advent Calendar

clip_image002Celebrate Advent

We have started our Advent calendar count down.  We are using the Jesse Tree Calendar Connection cards from 1+1+1=1, along with the e-book and ornaments.  Here is a picture of our calendar, that hangs on the door to our garage (in the living room next to our learning center.)  We have been placing the ornaments on our Learning Tree.

I also found these Advent Activity cards:

You can download these visiting Wendolonia.
I cut out the ones that work for us and I have placed them on the back of the  Jesse Tree cards and placed them along with the ornaments in the pocket chart slots. 

We will be gone this weekend picking up our missionary daughter and taking our unique son to the YWAM base for his birthday.  He wants to see some his buddies from the 23/7 program he did this summer. During the days we are gone I put in activities that my giving son and rock star son can do with them.  If they do not get to them, I will do them with them when we get back… so needless to say, these days have light activities in them. Actually most of the activities are things we can do without to much effort.

DSCN1286We read from our kindle app on the i-pad the daily reading that goes with the Jesse Tree Calendar Connection cards. 

The girls will also have their advent box activities from my missionary daughter, we have been putting the tags from the daily gift on the tree.

We also put the annual picture we get of Nana & Papa on the tree as a reminder to pray for them.

This has been very doable and the girls were able to complete the activities themselves one of the days that I had to run to meet people for house stuff.

Enjoying this Advent Season~
