Our Scripture Tree

Last year, we started a new tradition that my kids LOVE!
It's an advent calendar that has a scripture & a question for each day until Christmas comes.   

I originally got the idea from the magazine called "The Friend" which is put out by our church for the children to read.  You can find the link HERE.

 I  decided to make ourselves a Scripture Tree out of felt.
So we could do it every Christmas.

 I typed up the scripture for each day numbering them 1-25 & put the question next to it.

Next,  I printed it out & framed it. 

Now the questions hang above the tree in our hallway.
I was going to make a felt ornament for each day, but  then I found these adorable stickers at Walmart.  I just added Velcro to the back & they have worked out great.
 They are made of plastic, so they'll last a long time.
Each night the kids take turns & read the scripture, answer the question & pick an ornament to hang on the tree. 
When the tree is full...we know Christmas is here! 
They love it & it helps remind us what Christmas is all about!
