NEW for this year, another brilliant sticker Advent Calendar where the stickers tell the story.
Every day there’s a sticker to add, revealing another part of the story. Plus there’s part of the story to read each day from The Christmas Story mini book.
The calendar is A5, showing a Nazareth street scene, and the first 5 stickers show the angel Gabriel appearing to Mary and Joseph. The rest of the stickers go inside where there’s a full A4 Bethlehem scene (see pictures).
With 36 stickers, there’s one for every day in Advent plus one for Christmas Day (Jesus is ‘born’ on sticker 10 then is ‘awake’ on sticker 25). There are also 11 EXTRA stickers to add to show who says what, an easy way to explore some of the special messages we find in this story. As there are no numbers for the extra stickers, families are encouraged to use The Christmas Story mini book to work out where to put the stickers.
The Christmas Story Mini Book has the story from the Contemporary English Version of the Bible, a great translation for families to read out loud, with the part for each day numbered and showing a picture of the sticker for that day.
There’s even an idea for creating your own nativity set using Duplo, Lego, Play mobil, wooden people, soft toys, cut out card or felt pieces or even dinosaurs!
I wonder which part of the story you will like most? I wonder which message speaks to you?
With huge discounts when you order multiple copies, this calendar is a great gift to give to families to help them celebrate the true meaning of Christmas.
