One of our family’s favorite Christmas traditions is a Christmas countdown calendar. We have several of these days till Christmas countdown calendars and they’re a hit year after year.
A few years ago I got the idea of combining a Christmas countdown calendar for kids with a Christmas Bible study that told the Christmas story! Our kids loved the idea of learning about the biblical Christmas story a little at a time, and now it’s become an essential Christ Centered Christmas family tradition during the 30 days before Christmas.
I want to show you how you can make this easy 30 day Christmas countdown calendar that will not only be a fun Christmas activity for your kids but will be an easy way to create a Christ-centered Christmas in your home and easily do Christmas Bible study lessons as a family.
If you’re looking for an easy fun way to keep the focus on Christ during the hectic holiday season, you’ll simple Christmas activity love this that teaches kids about the true Christmas story, and grows everyone closer to God through the process.
How Does The 30 Christmas Countdown Bible Study Work?
The idea is simple: Read a little bit of the Christmas story each day using a fun Christmas countdown calendar. Each day of the calendar contains a Bible passage to read and study together, so as family members enjoy their days till Christmas countdown they’re also getting a mini Bible study each day.
Kids love it because they get to choose something fun everyday from the calendar; and parents love it because it’s a fantastic way to keep God as the center of the Christmas traditions.
But I can hear you asking: Where do you start? How do you even put something like this together?
The good news is that it’s all done for you as part of the Christ-Centered Christmas Family Traditions Printables.
You simply print the tags and hang them up with clothespins (on a ribbon, for example). Each day as you countdown to Christmas remove that days’ tag and read the Bible verses together.
The Christ-Centered Christmas Family Traditions Printables also includes a sheet where kids can respond to the day’s verses using the 5Rs Bible Study Method ™, or even just drawing a picture and/or writing a sentence or two.
Here’s a video of how this awesome 30- Day Christmas Countdown Calendar Bible Study works:
