In the days before Christmas your children will be eager to run to their Advent calendar to learn a new step in the Nativity story. A lovely, natural cotton cord can be wrapped down your staircase or hung across your fireplace. Hanging from the cord are 12 carefully labeled linen bags - counting down the days to Christmas.
Each morning, your children can remove that day's bag and read the glossy paperboard card that tells a step in the Nativity story, and along with their lesson is a treat you have left them for that day! After the card is read, it can be placed into a binder for next year, or each story can be re-read the following days to reinforce them. Parents can rest easy though, knowing all the parts are washable or can be wiped clean, just in case of accidents.
