As you may know, I got the opportunity to review Truth in the Tinsel: An Advent Experience for Little Hands by OhAmanda, which is a 24-day eBook that counts you and your kids down to Christmas Day with an interactive telling of the Christmas story through crafts and scriptures and ideas for talking with your kids about Jesus’ birth.
Well, my kids and I have been LOVING it!! After doing it for these first 12 days of December, it has been a FANTASTIC way to teach them the story of Jesus’ birth and they are really getting it! I am amazed at all the details Justice is able to remember from the story and that he is learning valuable lessons along the way as well. And of course they love the crafts and making ornaments for the Christmas tree each day.
But for those of you who missed getting the book earlier, don’t fear! When you go to download your copy of the eBook, it will also provide you with an alternative 12-day schedule that will allow you to participate in this “advent-ure” for the next 12 days leading up to Christmas! Here you can see some pictures of how much fun we’ve been having…
I would so highly recommend that you join in on this, as it will be so worth it! We are having a ton of fun with it and Jesus is being glorified and celebrated in a way that is impacting and impressing the Word upon the hearts of my kids!
Update: Go here to read my final thoughts after completing the entire 24 days!
