Great Advent idea: fill 25 little bags with ornaments and a bible verse about Christ birth. Everyday (starting Dec let child open a bag and hang an ornament on the tree and teach them about the story of Jesus' birth.
Doing this this year! LOVE this idea. Wrap a Christmas book and put it under the tree each morning. You then have a Christmas story to read each day (for as many days as you'd like). Also, a list of great Christmas books for little ones.
