Counting the Days to Christmas

Beck is 1000% too interested in toys and presents this year so I've been looking for a really good way to focus his mind on what's more important at the holiday times.  There are sooooo many great ideas floating around right now, but this is the one that finally clicked for me...
Each day Sarah at Confessions of a Slacker Mom is putting together a song, a scripture, and an activity to share as a family and help get everybody's mind back on the center of Christmas, Jesus Christ.  

Please don't be scared off by the Mormon title.  The activities will be fun and uplifting for everyone.  Last night we sang "Away In A Manger" and read verses in the book of Luke.  Tonight the song is "O Come All Ye Faithful" with a reading in Malachi and a coloring page.  

If you've been looking for something to help add special meaning to your family's Christmas celebrating, hop over and look at "The 24 Days of Mormon Christmas."  (And while you're there, check out Sarah's Walk Beside Me preschool curriculum)

What is your family doing to focus on Christ this Christmas?

  1. Thank you for the sweet comments! I really hope people enjoy the quick little devotionals I've planned. It keeps the Christmas spirit more about Christ and less about gifts!


It's so nice to hear your ideas! Thanks for taking the time to share.
