Light Advent candle 1 and Advent candle 2. (I review each letter).
Luke 2: 1-7
Key Figures: Baby Jesus, Bethlehem, unlikely birthplace of the Son of God (the stable).
Possible Gifts: A new Christmas book, stickers, Christmas movie.
Activities: Make a manger scene. We have made a manger out of toilet paper tube and a craft stick for Baby Jesus. Our favorite set was made from small clay pots. You could also cut out the nativity scene from an old Christmas card, glue it to construction paper, and add a star with glitter.
Other: I love nativity sets that kids can make or play with. We have added to our Fisher Price set every year. I put this toy away after Christmas so it is special. Even my oldest daughter who is ten loves to set up the story with this set.
