Advent Candle Activity!

This is a simple, fun activity you can start today to prepare our families for Christmas. (If you don’t have a new, fancy candle, that’s okay! I used one that had already been lit many times and just squeezed the numbers on it.) This is what you do:

1. Number a candle from 25 at the top to 1 at the bottom.

2. Once a day, light the candle (we light it at mealtime).

3. Read the verse for that day about the story of Jesus. Older kids can look up the verse to read in a Bible (Daily Verse Calendar via HappyHomeFairy.)

4. Blow the candle out when it reaches the next number.

Enjoy slowing down and breathing in the meaning of Christmas with this activity.
