Advent is a great time to open those little doors and remove the chocolate or toy within, but as we do this why not add in one of these prompt cards? They number from the 1st to the 25th and follow the story of Christmas through characters and objects.

They also compliment into the advent candle wreath craft and the traditional 4 characters used to symbolize the candles on an advent ring.



For the wonderful Carol who requested this on facebook.

This is my little nativity scene. It took me about half an hour to make up from scratch and while it’s not robust enough to store from one year to the next it is rather darling.




As a final craft for this years Christmas update we have an angel. Not really specific to any story but matching the Angel graphic in the Christmas Heroes post, this little character works well on it’s own or with an electric tea-light under it.

This angel is heavily inspired by the free paper-craft angels over on the Allsorts blog. If an objection is voiced then this craft will be removed.



Here are the extra images you may need to tell the Christmas story.

There are 2 styles of Angel, one with solid wings and one with feathered wings, I’ve included a character you could use for Zechariah as well as the generic baby graphic, a sheep and even an attempt at a donkey. Find Elizabeth, Mary, Joseph, the shepherd and Anna in their lesson sets.

The images are displayed small here, click on the image you wish to have, then save the image that loads.
