Advent Treasure Hunt Calendar
On the back of the calendar are questions for families to answer each day of December, accompanied by a Bible verse. For example, the first question is: “What animal announces the start of a new day on a farm and signals the beginning of the holiday season for us? Lamentations 3:23” When you open the window for December first on the front of the calendar, you see a picture of a rooster, along with the text of Lamentations 3:23: “The Lord can always be trusted to show mercy each morning.” This is a delightful way for parents and children to explore Bible passages together, as well as a fun activity for children to try to guess the answer to the question!

Which Way Is Christmas? An Advent Book with Devotions, Rhymes & Seek-and-Find Picture Puzzles
This fun activity book leads children on a search for the baby Jesus! Kids scan the colorful Seek-and-Find photographs for hidden objects. My kids LOVE these kinds of books. Each day also contains a suggested Bible citation along with a short devotion. This book is especially fun to do with younger children.
