This year I am SO excited to try something new with our kids! I love the idea of teaching them about the meaning of Christmas...but it's hard to find a way to do this that is interesting, relevant and fun for little minds and little hands. When I first discovered Truth in the Tinsel, I knew that it was just what I had been looking for! Truth in the Tinsel is an Advent experience for little hands, and it is an amazing way to make sure God's Word, and the meaning of Christmas are the focus of your home.
For each day of Advent, Truth in the Tinsell has a Scripture reading, ornament crafts, talking points and extension activities. It comes complete with the templates you need for some of the crafts and a few extra fun printables. I love it. The crafts are so sweet and range from fuzzy, little sheep to an egg-carton inn. They are crafts that you can easily make at home without purchasing hardy any additional supplies. I believe I only purchased 1 or 2 small items in preparation for the crafts - and I got those at the thrift store for a few dollars. It is completely do-able...even for a busy mom of 4 children, like myself. :)
Besides the crafts (which kids are all bound to love!), I also truly appreciated having the other details laid out and ready to go for each day. It makes it a lot more appealing for me if I have the Scripture reading and some suggested topics to talk about all laid out and right in front of me. And I must say...the topics and Scriptures are perfect for helping us keep our hearts focused on the birth of Christ.
We are beyond excited to begin Truth in the Tinsel with our children. Everything is organized and ready to go, and I have a feeling that it will help to make this one of our favorite, and most meaningful Christmases yet!
Truth in the Tinsel has a fabulous blog - that is full of great ideas and updates (I think there's even a giveaway going on over there right now!) You'll also want to join the Facebook community where a bunch of us Truth in the Tinsel fans do the book together during Advent (uploading pictures of crafts, conversations with our kids, asking questions, giving tips, etc.) In addition to the Truth in the Tinsel e-book, you can also buy printable ornaments and a NEW Spanish version of the book as well!
