Tomorrow, our family will begin our version of the twelve days of Christmas. Each morning, when the kids get up, they will listen to the story from Luke 2:1-14 about Jesus' birth. Each day, a new aspect of the story will come to light.
I am using short videos to help as a visual aid and they include some funny things based on jokes that have floated around our home. This all leads to a clue the kids have to solve to find Joseph, Mary, and the donkey hidden somewhere in the house. Along with the figures, they find a little gift. These figurines represent Joseph and Mary traveling to Bethlehem, which in our home, is the Nativity set. On Christmas morning, they will be at the nativity with the baby Jesus.
I cannot reveal everything involved yet, as it might ruin the surprise (my kids see this website), but we are simply working through one part of the Christmas story and letting it reveal new things to the kids. I'll share as I go on here, so check back.
