Advent Devotions Young Families



With my background as a Children’s Pastor for 14 years, I love finding things that help families focus on the real meaning of Christmas. Doing Advent Devotions  as a family is fun and takes some of the commercialism out of the season and focuses on the gift of Jesus, God’s Son. As a family, set up a special time each night to do these Advent devotions.

Some of the best devotional and activity books for Advent that I have found are from Creative Communications.   On their site, they have both a Protestant and a Catholic version. Each booklet has  short readings with activities, crafts and game suggestions.  There are several different books to choose from and they add more each year. Order a different one for each year or order several and use one each year just to  save shipping costs. They are very reasonably priced! It also makes a wonderful gift to give to other families. Some churches order in quantity and give to their preschool and early elementary families!

Hope this gives you some ideas for your Advent Devotions and on how to focus on the real meaning of Christmas!

This is merely a recommendation and I receive no funds for this post. I’m posting this early so you can order and be ready to start at the beginning of Advent.

Hope your Christmas focuses on Christ!

  1. Pinned! Love this post. Featuring at Family Fun Friday. 🙂

  2. When my children were younger we use to a wreath with advent candles, we would read various scriptures, and sing. One year we used the Jesse Tree theme to make ornaments for our Christmas tree. Thanks for bringing those memories back, they were special times, and sharing on Tuesdays With a Twist.

    • Yes, those are special times! I’m sure they remember them, too!

  3. Such a great idea!! Thanks for linking this wonderful post up to my “Themed Blog & Shop Hop!”
