Part 1 of 12 Days of Christmas Advent Calendar

I showed you all a Glimpse at the 12 days of Christmas countdown quilt that I made for my daughter.  My plans were to reveal it to you all today but sadly the weather has just not allowed for pictures being taken outside the last couple of days.  So you will just have to deal with a part of our calendar.

To get ready for the 12 days of Christmas I printed off THESE pictures (they are numbers 5-7)  The picture above is taken from that website.  Head on over there and print your own off.

I printed them off onto cardstock, had my husband help me color them (I am not an Artsy craft person, more like a sewing crafts person), and then I figured out what we were going to do each of the 12 days.  I have a scripture to read and also a Jesus movie to watch (we have lots of the living scripture dvds) every one of those days.  Then we also have something to do or something to learn about (like make a present for dad, what do bells symbolize at Christmas time, etc).  I will go into more detail when I show you the pictures of the finished product.    

Then I cut out each piece (I ended up printing off extra of the camel and sheep so I would have 12 big objects) and laminated them.

Even though the 12 days of Christmas hasn't officially started yet, I took the nativity scene to church and let the girls tape them to the back of the pews.  It kept them entertained.  The kids in nursery loved sticking them to the walls later.  So there are so many ways to use this fun little nativity.
