ADVENT FAMILY ACTIVITY CALENDAR
The calendar will have 23 items to be wrapped and opened by family members--one each day from Advent 1 to Christmas. There are Scriptures with each item to look up in your family Bible that accompany and explain each item. The cost of supplies for the Advent calendar is $10.00.
These are activities in which you and/or your family will enjoy being involved.
Both help to slow down and take the anxiety out of Christmas preparations.
