Are the Kids Really Getting It?
Parents and grandparents, you have asked this question before. You try every Christmas season to make sure the main thing remains the main thing. But are the kids really getting it?
We Have a Lot of Distractions
We Decided to Change our Traditions
We added Advent Blocks last year and the change in our kids was significant! On Christmas morning they were as excited to read the story as they were to open presents (almost).
A Christmas practice that helps kids—and parents!—anticipate the birth of Jesus, and not just presents.
This practice is a tangible, Bible-based, 25-day guide to creating an exciting environment in the home around God coming to earth.
HERE IS HOW IT WORKS
We made it simple, fun, and meaningful.
Step 1: Set Up Before December 1st
Step 2: Get Started
Each day, read the story, and rotate that day’s block so that the image is revealed.
Move the Star Block one space to the right, resting on top of that day’s image—and one step closer to the World Block.
Step 3: Reveal
You are 24 days in, it's Christmas Eve, and today is the big day!
Emmanuel, God With Us
After you read the story on December 24, turn all of the blocks one more time to reveal a secret message.
Will You Join Us?
We know there is no silver bullet to any problem we face in this Christian life. However, we do know, from our firsthand experience with our families, that Advent Blocks are a very powerful tool to help lead our families in focusing on Christ during the Christmas season.
My kids are so excited for the product. We have placed an order for several and can't wait to give them away as gifts this year.
My girls are so looking forward to their blocks. They can't wait until Christmas to use them! We are going to get a couple more for our neighbors as well.
It's so hard to keep my kids focused on Jesus during the Christmas season. I am so excited about using this tool this year to help us stop every night and do our reading.
