Simple countdown calendar for Advent & Christmas with daily challenges and Nativity Character Ornaments to colour. This is best printed on an A4 card single-sided. Print and include with either the Countdown to Christmas or Advent and Christmas reflections for any and all families in your community.
These resources are connected thematically with the Journey to Joy Countdown to Christmas, Advent and Christmas Reflections to enable ongoing engagement for congregation members, families, and people in your community over this Advent and Christmas season. These additional resources include 15-character reflections (three for each week’s theme), topics and questions for discussion for small groups, families, or individuals to engage with. These reflections invite the participant to explore a character connected with the Advent story, how their own story might connect, as well as some challenges connected with the weekly theme. They are designed to invite conversation, connection, and creativity across generations by providing opportunities to share and hear each other’s stories, as well as to engage in activities together to explore God’s big story.
