The Names of Jesus Advent Chain is the perfect Christmas tradition!
I’ve shared this free printable Names of Jesus Advent Chain the last couple of years because I love it and look forward to making one each year.
I also think it’s a great Christmas activity for families to do together.
Names of Jesus Advent
When my kids were young, one of the things that we always did to count down the days until Christmas, was make a Christmas countdown chain out of construction paper.
You probably made one when you were a kid too.
Using different strips of construction paper for each day leading up to Christmas.
Each morning they would rush to remove one more paper link from the Christmas countdown chain, and watch as the days until Christmas got closer and closer.
This countdown to Christmas chain was created to make an easy way to teach kids to keep their focus on the birth of Jesus instead of just the fun and gifts that come with Christmas.
It’s really pretty easy to make this advent countdown chain. All you have to do is print out the names of Jesus printable.
You can print it directly on colored paper.
We suggest using lighter colored paper like blue and silver, but any colors you want will work.
Or you can print them out onto white printer paper and glue the name of Jesus strips to the strips of colored paper of your choice.
This is an easy advent for kids to make themselves and put together.
If you and your kiddos make this, I would LOVE to see yours!!
This is such a fun and easy way to countdown the days until Christmas and still keep the focus on the birth of Christ.
Although my kids are older now I still think I will do this today to remind me of what we are really counting down to!
