This coloring and activity book helps children ages 3-10 learn about and celebrate Advent and Christmas. An excellent tool for parents or for church school teachers, this book is filled with crafts ideas, puzzles, and word games. All of these activities are woven into a story of two children celebrating the season with their family.
This well-balanced approach to the Advent and Christmas season helps children follow the biblical story that is the focus of Christmas, while it helps them place gift-giving, making cookies, and other activities into context. Parents and children can enjoy a variety of craft activities outlined in the book, such as the construction of Advent wreaths and simple Advent calendars, Christmas tree ornaments, and more. Permission to photocopy individual pages for use during worship services or church school is included.
