My oldest daughter, Rachel, drew the coloring pages with the Advent Wreath, the manger, and Baby Jesus. She had hoped I’d share them with all of you. For this coloring page activity, the kids can color the Advent wreath, candles, manager, flames, and Jesus. Then they can glue one flame to a candle each week. On Christmas day they can add Jesus to the manger!
Print the chain strips onto colored paper (I used red and green). I cut construction paper down to a regular size sheet of paper and placed it into my printer. Worked great! Then cut on the dotted line to make the strips, which you will need to create the chain. We used a stapler to attach the ends together as we made our chain. We turned the prayer intentions to the inside.
Each night as we are saying our evening prayers we remove a chain link and say an extra prayer for the special intention listed on that chain ink. Depending on the length of Advent you may need to just the number of links on the chain.
Hope you have a blessed Advent!
