Now, rather than just using a paper chain to count down, I've got a neat way for you to create meaning in the last 12 days of Christmas count down.
Binder Clip or Paper Clip
Some of the bible verses and ideas are.
- Paper clip: Read Ephesians 2:13. Hook the paper clip to a keychain, zipper, or other item. Talk about how that resembles being united with Christ.
- Staple: Read Romans 8:39. Talk about what a staple does, and how that compares with God's love.
- Pebble: Read Matthew 7:24-25. Try to flatten the pebble with your finger. Then set it out as a reminder that Jesus is your rock and your firm foundation.
I think this is a great way to focus our kids count down to Christmas! It's quick, simple, toddler and preschool friendly, and most of all you'll have most of the items in your house and you won't have to do much to prepare! What are you waiting for? Go make a Christmas Countdown Box!
