Celebrate Christmas was a nativity advent calendar! Check out all the beautiful Christian advent calendars! I found a great variety of wooden nativity advent calendars, felt and fabric advent calendars, magnet advent calendars, and more! Enjoy these more religious advent calendars!
Each year we try hard to make sure that in the whirlwind of Holiday events, activities, and traditions, that we are focusing on the true meaning of Christmas – the celebration of the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
It’s easy to get caught up in various activities this time of year, even good things like service and charity work, but for kids, media messages still bombard them with endless ideas of stuff that they want and need to have in order to have a happy Christmas morning.
That’s why I love having so many different things that help us focus on the Savior, so many nativity items! It’s why we read children’s Christmas books that focus on the Savior, color nativity coloring pages, get out our favorite kid nativity sets, and don nativity costumes while we act out the nativity story found in the scriptures.
Any excuse to talk about the Savior is a great thing in my book!
That’s why I think it’s great to do a nativity advent calendar!
Instead of opening an advent calendar to reveal a new piece of candy or a small toy (like these toy advent calendars do and even these unique advent calendars for kids), why not have them open up to reveal a scripture passage about Jesus or reveal a character from the nativity scene or otherwise have them countdown (like Mary and Joseph were) to the day the Savior would be born and change the world forever!
I searched around and discovered so many great and amazing nativity advent calendars, including felt nativity advent calendars, cloth nativity advent calendars, magnetic nativity advent calendars, and other Christian advent calendars with Bible verses. Many are children’s Christian advent calendar but feel free to use them for teens and adults alike!
Enjoy finding the perfect nativity advent calendar for your home and your family and friends for this year!
