If you are looking for advent devotionals to share with your children this Christmas season, this list is sure to give you plenty of ideas! I’d also encourage you to get my Holiday Homeschool Christmas Planner for more ideas, plus a great way to plan and preserve all your holiday memories!
Family Advent Readings and Activities
Celebrate Jesus with a Jesse Tree from Feels Like Home
Good Morning Girls Advent Study from Women Living Well
Reasons for the Season – this devotional is simple, but powerful!
The Advent Jesse Tree – this was suggested to me by a friend, and I wasn’t disappointed! It includes devotions for children and adults and is an Amazon Bestseller.
Jesse Tree Advent Family Devotional by Ann Voskamp – this used to be free, but is now a lovely book entitled Unwrapping the Greatest Gift.
A fun addition to this would be the Advent activities from The Homegrown Preschooler blog that match each day of this devotional!
You can also purchase The Greatest Gift for yourself to use during your Quiet Time!
Reasons for the Season from Toddler Bites shared on Women Living Well
Advent Reading Plan from Not Consumed
Family Advent Guide from Lifeway
2012 Jesse Tree Advent Devotional from Tired, Need Sleep
Advent Boxes from I Can Teach My Child
Advent Coloring Book Pages from Ministry-to-Children

Melk the Monkey – not a free devotional, but one worth mentioning! Like Elf on a Shelf, but way less creepy (and way more Christ-centered!).
This is the monkey we ordered to go with the Melk book:
Jesse Tree Readings, 3-D Ornaments, & Resources from Catholic Icing
Bible Verse Advent Cards from Happy Home Fairy
Kids' Advent Devotional from AllGather.org
Truth in the Tinsel - a fairly inexpensive hands-on advent devotional that is really great for young children.
Need a Kid Friendly Nativity Scene?
The PLAYMOBIL Nativity Set has been a family favorite for many years!
If you are looking for a set with chunkier pieces (for littler hands),
I highly recommend the Little People Christmas Story Set
(We keep ours under the Christmas Tree to discourage the little ones from playing with ornaments!)
Don't miss your FREE Family Christmas Eve Service (this is what we use every year to celebrate Christmas Eve!) Have a blessed Christmas!
