Keep Christ in Christmas

Are you searching for ways to keep yourself and children focused on Christ this year instead of toys, candy, elves, and reindeer?  Check out this awesome Blog hop hosted 
by Monica at Equpping Catholic Families.  Participating Blogs are listed at the end of this post.

Advent is a time to wait and participate!

Feel to use this open-ended printable for Advent in any way that helps your children prepare for Christ.

Some ideas starters may include:

Make a bookmark with each candle to use as reminder to keep Christ in Christmas.

Use the printable as a planner for preparation during the four weeks before Christmas.

Cut out the candles and attach them to a “paper headband” to make an Advent hat or center piece.

Write or draw a picture on each candle of things done to prepare our hearts for Christ.
