For the last few years our family has used this advent calendar – a Bible Verse each day to help us to get ready for Christmas.
The free downloads are the pictures – that can be coloured in each day of advent – and on each picture card there is a Bible verse reference. I like the fact that this means that as a family we open the Bible to find the verse.
Once you have downloaded the picture cards you need to cut them out. Then you can use numbered envelopes and pegs to display the calendar. We always start with the closed envelopes pegged to the string then each day open and display the picture card with the verse. You can add a small chocolate to the envelope but if this is too tight a fit have some chocolates hidden somewhere for your children to find.

Edit to add – I will also enter you if you leave a comment on either of our facebook pages
