Advent Elf

So, I have an idea.

It’s kind of too late to implement this year, but hey, there is always next year.

Wanna know what my idea is?

The Advent Elf.

Before I share, I must admit that I can’t take credit for the whole idea. My inspiration came from Scout who is currently working for the family over at Bring the Rain.

But anywho, here is my little twist:

I am going to scrap the advent calendar and start the tradition of an advent elf. Every day our little elf (who has yet to be named) will show up in a new place and the kiddos have to search him out and find him. He will have their assignments for serving Jesus for that day.

The fun is finding the elf in a new spot each day.

The glory is in honoring Jesus with service.

Now I just have to find a cute little elf to fill the role…

    that's a wonderful idea… especially since i was having so much trouble figureing out what kind of calendar would be fun but nice enough to hold the day to day service stuff… can i copy you? :)

  16. Kim @ My Journey says:

    I LOVE this idea…. particularly since I was not sure how to create a calendar (I lack the crafty gene).
