Can I confess something to you? I start listening to Christmas music in September. Secretly, with my headphones as I walk in the morning. I dream up ideas for Christmas, my favorite time of the year. One the my imaginings conjured up this idea: An Advent Calendar of stockings that was focused on service. I have to say I’m pretty happy with how it turned out!
24 little stockings holding twenty four opportunities to share the spirit of Christ and Christmas with others. For my young family I plan on putting simple challenges in each stocking like “hold the door open for everyone today” and “Pack and extra apple and share it” to teach them little by little the joys of service to others.
This Calendar can of course be easily changed to suit your needs. You can get the tutorial complete with template and step by step instructions here.
