The ADVENTure of Christmas

If you can only purchase one new book this year I recommend you make it The ADVENTure of Christmas by Lisa Whelchel.

According to the cover The ADVENTure of Christmas is a Mom's guide to "helping children find Jesus in our holiday traditions."

The book does that and more. Each of the 25 chapters provides a devotional, 1-2 related kids' activities and a "teachable moments" section.

The teachable moments are simple conversation starters to help you discuss the tradition with your child.

In all honesty, most of the activities are too advanced for my children (currently ages 3-8) to do. But I think every mom should own this book because it inspires creativity and togetherness.

Remember our candy cane reindeer (an activity found in The ADVENTure of Christmas)? My children couldn't make their reindeer completely on their own so we worked on it together. They glued on the red pom-pom noses while I did the rest. If you asked my kids, THEY made the reindeer, and I'm OK with that.

We had fun together and made a sweet memory, all inspired by The ADVENTure of Christmas.

I love it when the little guys get together and create art - especially when it is God art!
