Christmas Countdown with Songs
Each year during Advent our family does a countdown to Christmas. We have a fun way our kids anticipate the birth of our Savior!
Some of the things include: Make a gingerbread house, decorate our tree, take a walk around the neighborhood to see lights for Christmas, have hot chocolate and read Christmas books, visit Santa, etc.
This year we are doing a countdown to the season (still with fun activities, but also) with MEANINGFUL Christmas songs. I have made up a list of ones that are meaningful to us as Christians and my kids and I will learn what the song means and do a fun activity that goes along with it. I am all for my kids singing jingle bells and Santa Clause is coming to town, but I am also really excited to them to learn songs that have more meaning to us. I will be posting our songs each day so get ready!
