Book Advent: We read Bear Stays Up for Christmas by:Karma Wilson
We love Bear Snores On by the same author. The illustrations and the story is so cute. We love these books!
The Wise Men Follow the Star to Find Jesus
- Read Matthew 2:1-12
- Go on a treasure hunt – Write a series of clues on some star cutouts. Each clue will lead them to the next star (and the next clue). Have the last clue state “The greatest treasure of all!” which will lead them to the baby Jesus in your nativity! Discuss how Jesus truly is the greatest treasure and gift from our loving God.
He absolutely loved the Treasure Hunt. He is crazy for Blue’s Clues, so I think that is why he enjoyed it so much.
- Make a Star Craft. We used his watercolors for the first time to paint star ornaments and hung them from the tree.
