Countdown to Christmas - Day 1

If you missed the introduction post, click here

Welcome to Day 1 of Getting Ready for Christmas!!

Today, we will read Luke 1:26-32 with our children where we learn about the angel, Gabriel, visiting Mary.

Thank you God for your special plan for Mary. 
Thank you God for your special plan for me. 
In Jesus' name, Amen.

To continue the theme of angels, make an angel craft with your children or food item. Anything you want! If you are lucky enough to get snow, bundle up and start making snow angels. If you haven't already, get the Christmas tree up and put your angel on top. You can also do double duty here and practice the letters in "ANGEL." The things to do/make are endless, especially with kids!

I have collected a bunch of crafts and recipes on Pinterest. Here a a few that I think we may do:

Hand and Foot Angel - very cute and could double as a Christmas present to grandparents :)

Hand print angel ornament

Paula Deen's Angel Biscuits (you didn't think I would leave her out, did you? lol)

Have fun! We will be back later with our "show and tell" post of today's activity. 

To get your imagination going, tomorrow's theme:
