Spending December in a meaningful way with my little ones is a passion of my heart. I want to prepare their little hearts to love and treasure the true meaning of Christmas. Celebrating Advent has been a tradition in our family every year, but finding a resource that is appropriate especially for little ones has been a challenge. Truth in the Tinsel is a new resource that fabulously meets this need! This little ebook has 24 daily activities including Bible readings, talking points, extension activities, and craft ornaments for the advent season (all for just $7.99). Each craft is simple, hands-on, beautiful, and ties in wonderfully with the theme and goal of preparing our hearts for the Savior’s birth. They all can be hung on your Christmas tree or a separate dedicated tree displaying the story of the birth of Jesus from beginning to end. Most of the crafts are easily made with just simple things around your home.
I am super stoked about this book! And even if you don’t have the time or energy to make a craft every day, you can also get the paper ornaments set that can be purchased along side the Truth in the Tinsel ebook that can be simply colored and cut out. I highly recommend this resource! It is appropriate for all ages, not just the young ones, as the ornaments are not cheesy in any way, but truly elegant! I am going out this weekend to collect my supplies!
I enjoyed using this with my little boys this year! Thanks so much for the recommendation.
Thanks for posting about this. Another blog I was reading mentioned it and I found the Truth in the Tinsel blog but couldn’t find out what it actually was. But you explained it really well. I’m going to look into this for next year.
Just bought this! Thanks for sharing, it looks like it is going to be so much fun and so helpful with teaching my two girls!
Thanks also to Jessica for sharing the code! Love saving 20%!
Thanks a ton. I just bought it and put all our craft supplies together for each day to make our advent “calendar”. This is such a great resource for kids who love to do arts and crafts. The scripture readings and lessons are great, and the ornaments do a great job reinforcing the Bible truth. Our first two days have gone great!
So excited to begin this on Sunday! Thanks for passing along the info.
Thanks so much for posting about this! I just purchased it and am super excited to do it with my 3 year old! (:
