Christmas Countdowns

As we pack away the autumnal decorations for another year, I bring out the various Christmas manipulatives we keep in our home to infuse Christ into the Holly Jolliness of the season.

What God Wants for Christmas is a fantastically sturdy nativity set, complete with a great storybook, CD, and message for your children.  We started using this when I still had preschoolers - my kids STILL love this one.

We also use the JESSE TREE.  This is great for elementary-age kiddos.  Paper cut-out ornaments adorn a tree.  It can be a real tree, the ornaments in the shape of a tree on the wall - whatever works for your home.  


And we have a great little felted nativity scene that ornaments are hung on.  Each ornament is held in it's own numbered pocket beneath the manger.
