Advent: Day 5

Lego Advent Calendar:
 Bible Verses: decended from the line of david

Behold, the days are coming,” says the Lord,
“That I will raise to David a Branch of righteousness;
A King shall reign and prosper,
And execute judgment and righteousness in the earth.
 In His days Judah will be saved,
And Israel will dwell safely;
Now this is His name by which He will be called:

And your house and your kingdom shall be established forever before you.  Your throne shall be established forever. 2 Samuel 7:16

Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judea, to the city of David, which is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and lineage of David Luke 2:4

the son of Melea, the son of Menan, the son of Mattathah, the son of Nathan, the son of David, Luke 3:31


one of the biggest challenges i can run into with finding advent activities is the age span of my children.  i need to find something the can engage a 13 year old, an 8 year old, and a 6 year old.

when i saw the paper strip tree, i knew this would be perfect
 i cut a variety of green paper into strips

 i set them on the table, gave minimal instructions, and let them create

 it was something that they could do on their own
or working with one of their siblings

 once the trees were completed, mauryn used a circle punch to made the ornaments for the trees

i love how they turned out.
each one unique, just like my kiddos.
i can't wait to get these up in the house.
