Christmas Beads-The Colors of Christmas

Cheyanne and I made his great necklace. Each color has a special meaning. of Christmas.

I thought this would not only make a great to do at home craft, but also a good one for Sunday school or children's church. I will be doing this with my pre-school class.

It would also make a great bracelet.

All you need is some kind of string for the necklace and beads.

The Colors of Christmas

Green- is for the Christmas tree that lights our holiday joyfully.

Red-is for the special love we feel for those we are thinking of.

Yellow- is for the Christmas star that guided the wise men from afar.

Blue-if for the mother's joy when gazing upon her baby boy.

Purple- is for the Heavenly King who came to earth. His peace to bring

I also wanted to share this, it is an advent wreath that the kids make. I just love this idea. Go to Teaching Tiny Tots to show you how.
