A MEANINGFUL Twelve Days of Christmas Advent {Free Printable}

  1. As I mentioned in my last post, I’m so excited to have a less commercialized, more Christ-Centered Christmas with my family this year.

One way that we will be doing that is this Twelve Days of Meaningful Christmas Advent Calendar:Twelve Days of MEANINGFUL Christmas Advent


In keeping with our Homemade Christmas…my gift to you is this printable advent.  

You will need to start on DECEMBER 14th to begin on time – or just jump in whenever :0)

Twelve Days of MEANINGFUL Christmas


This Advent Calendar has 12 days of scriptures & activities to encourage a more Christ Centered Christmas.

Putting it together couldn’t be easier!

Step 1: Download & Print both sheets of the PDF.  I printed mine onto cream colored – textured card stock.  I love the faded look that it produced!

**If you want to change the activities & have no photoshop skills – you can just slip a piece of paper behind and hand write the scriptures & activities. :0)

Step 2: Use an exacto knife to cut 3 of the sides to make a little door on each day of the calendar. Like This:

Step 3: Glue or tape the sheets together – with the activity page on the back. {so that they peek through the doors when opened}

Display it in a frame without the glass, or just washi tape it to the wall.  Give it to friends & neighbors, or as a Visiting Teaching handout! No matter how you choose to use it, I hope that this Twelve Days of Meaningful Christmas will bring the True Spirit of the Season into your home this Christmas!!
