On Tuesday, I shared two of our favorite advent resources.
Today I’m excited to share a few more of our favorites with you. It’s my hope that you will find at least one advent activity that will work for your family and help you focus on Jesus during this Christmas season.
What’s in the Bible?
We love the folks at What’s in the Bible? Our family owns and enjoys all of their DVDs! They have several ways you can help your kids understand the true meaning of Christmas.
Why Do We Call It Christmas? DVD
This hour long program is packed full of educational fun as Buck Denver and friends explain several Christmas traditions and how they all point to the wonderful gift of Jesus.
Why Do We Call It Christmas? Book
A new book from Phil Vischer, Why Do We Call It Christmas? The Real Story Behind The Holiday unwraps the real meaning behind our favorite Christmas traditions. You know the Christmas story – but do you know the story of Christmas?
This printable advent eBook from What’s in the Bible? helps guide families through four weeks of advent devotionals. Everyday Emmanuel is also full of lots of ideas for fun and meaningful activities to do with your family throughout the entire month of December.
Unwrapping the Greatest Gift: A Family Celebration of Christmas
I’m looking forward to this new advent book by Ann Voskamp. “Fall in love with Him all over again as you experience God’s plan of salvation for us—from the Garden of Eden to the manger and beyond.” Each devotion includes scripture readings to go along with each story, questions and activities to engage the entire family, and beautiful illustrations to further enhance each reading.
Read Some Good Christmas Books
Also, be sure to check out the Christmas Book section of our Amazon store for some ideas. My friend, Kristin, also has a great list of books for Christmas reading.
How does your family focus on Jesus during Christmas?
We like Lisa Welchel’s ADVENTure of Christmas book. I pull something different from it each year.
When they were littles, my kids liked to tuck baby Jesus into the manger each night as part of their bed time ritual. Such sweet memories. (Having a touchable nativity set would be my TOP suggestion for any new mom.)

We love our kid-friendly nativity. It’s the same type my parents have and I always loved playing with it.
I cannot wait to get some of these items! I have a soon to be three year old and he is starting to ask questions and these will be very helpful in teaching him the Christmas story. 🙂

For an almost 3-year-old you definitely want to check out Truth in the Tinsel as well.
