Christmas Tree Advent Calendar

Christmas Tree Advent CalendarPurchase a small tree and tiny ornaments to go with each scripture. Alternately, make a Christmas tree wall hanging and small, felt ornaments that can attach to the tree with velcro. We have three little trees with white lights in our family room and the kids are going to draw a picture of each item and hang the pictures on the tree this year.

Each night read the scriptures and then place the indicated ornament on the tree.

    Just have to update, we’ve been doing this since December 1 and my kids LOVE it. If I dare to forget, they remind me. Everyone looks forward to it. Fun!

    I wish next Christmas I have a little angel with me decorating and adoring our Christmas tree. I’d love to do it and fix it with my family around the Christmas tree helping to make it more beautiful.

    Issy, here’s hoping the same for you next season. We had a great time with the advent tree. I feel a new tradition coming on!

    Thanks for stopping by!

    Makes me so excited to get a tree and string it popcorn and cranberries.
