Until last year, I hadn’t ever celebrated Advent, and didn’t even really know what it was. A few homeschoolers on The Homeschool Lounge had talked about Advent, and posted a link to a free Advent study, and I thought I would give it a try with my family. I’m so glad I did as we all enjoyed it! We will be starting our nightly Advent celebrations again this year, on November 29th. I have my free Advent study all downloaded and ready to go. You can download it too, at the Our Grace Journey blog. If you’re like me and don’t like doing fill-in-the-blank activities with your children, simply discuss things with your children instead. There are also colouring pages, scriptures to read, and of course the lighting of the candles, which my children particularly enjoy. We find it’s a great way to get excited about and prepare for the coming of the Christ Child 🙂 We also like to include some readings of other books and stories nightly – last year we read A Christmas Carol and a story from "What Really Happened in the Middle Ages" about who Good King Wenceslas really was.
