Advent
Access and Success
 

a. Advent wreath sheet--be sure to discuss the meaning of the colors and parts. This will prepare for our family prayer at the end. See: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1FMb5TWj8stnvleariLy7kMwzt9-Ct7eZSHSD12SOsiE/edit?hl=en_US# and

b. Christmas tree and decorations activity. I will bring a small tree and mini decorations for you to use in the discussion. The sheet can be sent home or used as time allows. See: https://docs.google.com/viewer?a=v&pid=explorer&chrome=true&srcid=0B7_PeaRPN6DnY2RlYzNlY2QtMTkwMy00NmYwLWFhNzYtZTVkN2E1MWI3ODYz&hl=en_US

 

c. Music options. Please give the first one a try it sounds like fun and a good movement break for the kids. See: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1O_L4ky043Wuh-m1q36LW4uT54K6ushbdLPP3lcLZsJE/edit?hl=en_US#

 

d. Tour of church to look for Advent symbols--you don't need to make poster board. See: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1LTa8Q_nqv9kP-g3GgIHKp_bsw6qcFwZXU9T2YMcUapA/edit?hl=en_US#

 

e. Optional: Here are two good stories about St Nicholas online if you can use a computer in the lounge.
