This unique Advent calendar for kids will surely bring you closer to Jesus this season.
The Bible is full of amazing information. For example, it tells the story of God becoming a man, humbling himself to join his creation on earth, suffering mistreatment and indignity, and willingly dying a death he did not deserve in our place.
Scripture tells that story hundreds of years before Jesus’ birth.

For Christians, Advent is a season of expectant waiting while we anticipate celebrating the Incarnation of Christ. Jesus, God the Son, took the form of a servant and was born as a man. He humbled himself in ministry to his own creation, dying for us. God has glorified the Risen Son and one day every knee shall bow and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord. (Philippians 2:1-11)
HOW AMAZING IS THAT? It’s incredible.
The Christmas story is rich and multi-layered. I want my kids to know that story! I bet you do too.
Advent Calendar for Kids
You and I want our kids to celebrate the Advent season for real. We want them all to understand the wonder of the God who became man and died for their sins.
Christmas is about more than gifts and cookies. It doesn’t need to take a lot of effort to help our kids keep their eyes on Christ this Christmas.
I have a special Advent Calendar for you that will help your family focus on the story of Jesus’ coming in just a few minutes a day. This Advent Calendar is a craft your family can treasure for years.
- The Christmas Story
- Prophecies Fulfilled by Jesus’ Birth

Advent Calendars have always been a big part of my life. I had them as a child and now we have carried on the tradition. One can purchase several different types of advent calendars or make one with a focus on the birth of Christ.
