This advent chain is some thing we do every year at Christmas. My kids love ripping a link off everyday until Christmas comes.
This year I added a great poem that reminds us the true reason for Christmas.
We used: Construction paper, scissors, pen and a stapler.
Here is the poem I placed on the star:
A star shone down so all would know
That in a manger, on that night.
A savior was born, our guiding light!
Now Christmas time is almost here
A very special time of year.
When everyone anticipates
That night we can celebrate!
As you remove a link each night
Remember the star that shone so bright
And told the world of Jesus' birth
The Son of God, here on earth!
