Counting down the days

 We made these adorable wreaths at MOPS a few weeks ago.

There are 25 items wrapped in tissue paper with a few sentences and a bible verse that tells the story of Jesus and his birth.

The boys have been enjoying opening an item each day and reading the verse.

It has been fun watching them making the connections themselves.

They have recognized many of the stories we have read (Jesus turning water to wine, feeding thousands, healing a blind man, etc)

It has been a fun way to keep this season focused on Him.

They have also been able to use their bibles to look up the verses too!

They are curious about the items and have been trying to guess what they are.

Jonah asked me if I wrapped Jesus up for the last day!

Wouldn't that be great?
