5 Fun & Easy Activities As You Light Your Advent Wreath (Week 2)!
Do you celebrate Advent? As you light the second Advent candle (traditionally the Bethlehem candle), here are five fun activities to add to your celebration!
1. Bethlehem Scavenger Hunt
Do you have a kid-friendly nativity set? Hide the items around your home and have the kids "bring them back to Bethlehem" as they return the manger scene pieces to their rightful place. (This activity is a good reminder for us adults--as we feel scattered during the holiday season, we need to bring our focus back to Bethlehem too!)
2. Bethlehem Scripture Hunt
Use online tools or a good old fashioned concordance to find references to Bethlehem in the Bible. Look up these passages with your kids!
3. Bethlehem Geography Lesson
If you have young kids, find Bethlehem on a map or globe. Older kids might want to learn more about the place of our Savior's birth!
4. Act Out the Bethlehem Story
Give out roles to your family members and act out/retell the portion of the Christmas story that takes place in Bethlehem!
5. Nativity/Bethlehem Craft
During this week as you light the second candle, make a nativity craft. Check out my Bible Fun 4 Kids Pinterest Boards (see below). There are some fun ideas on my Christmas/Nativity Board.
