Advent and Christmas Resources for Children

 

If you are looking for some books, DVDs, and other materials to help your children understand the true meaning of Advent and Christmas, Aquinas and More has just what you are looking for. In today’s society, reindeer and elves are everywhere, but the world often overlooks the true reason for Christmas – Jesus Christ. You can take care of that in your home with these great resources – from prayer and meditations to religious art and activities – that help convey the true meaning of Advent and Christmas.

Advent Resources for Children

Often times, children’s books begin with the Christmas story of Christ’s birth. But it is never too soon to introduce children to the meaning of the preparatory season of Advent. Aquinas and More has resources that can aid in teaching Advent to Children.

Prayer and Education – Several books are available that will help teach and encourage Advent devotions for children.Advent: A Family Celebration is a guide of prayers and activities for each day in Advent, specifically geared towards families. It contains a pair of daily reflections and Advent readings for children for each day of the season, one to be used for families with younger children, and one for older children. It also includes Sunday prayers and prayers to say while decorating the Jesse Tree. Advent is for Children is a great, inexpensive book of stories and prayers, along with some activities to help elementary-aged students understand the importance of Advent. The Year and Our Children is a book that focuses on the entire liturgical year, including, of course, Advent and Christmas. Celebrating Advent with the Jesse Tree is a full color book designed to teach children about the season of preparation for Christ’s birth.

Art and Activities for Advent – Enhance family time during the Advent season with art and activities focused on the liturgical season, such as Advent, Christmas and Epiphany in the Domestic Home, which includes project ideas, stories, sewing patterns and more. The Advent coloring book is a great way to pique a child’s interest while also teaching him or her about the liturgical season of Advent. Creating and decorating a Jesse tree for the home is also a great activity for Advent. After reading Celebrating Advent with the Jesse Tree as a family, check out our Jesse Tree ornament kits by clicking here or here. A Stocking for Jesus is a neat preparatory book and activity that is good for families and even smaller children.

Advent Calendars – Advent calendars are another pre-Christmas tradition that children of all ages love. However, many calendars available unfortunately focus only on the secular with pictures of Santa, piles of presents, and snowmen, but no sign of Jesus, whose coming we are preparing for. Aquinas and More is excited now to offer a selection of religious Advent calendars that use beautiful artwork to convey the reason for the season. Some options include a sticker Nativity scene calendar, which allows children to add to the manger scene each day leading up to Christmas, and an Adoration Advent calendar which features a Bible verse behind each window for the child to open.

Christmas Resources for Children

Books and DVDs – While many Christmas books for kids focus only on Santa and presents, Aquinas and More offers a large selection of Christmas books about the true meaning of Christmas: Christ’s birth. We carry many beautiful picture books about Jesus’s birth such O Holy Night, The ABCs of Christmas, Christmas Interview, and The Story of the Birth of Jesus. Saint Francis Celebrates Christmas shows children how the Nativity scene, or Creche, became a part of Christmas tradition and The Catholic Christmas Book is a great treasury of Christmas traditions and customs.

If you are looking for DVDs, take a look at Christmas for Little Children, a sing-along with puppets and a professional ventriloquist; The Veggietales Holiday Double Feature; or The Best Christmas Pageant Ever.

Art and Activities – Teach children the importance of the first Christmas in a hands-on manner by helping them to build their own Nativity scene with this kit. As always, a Christmas coloring book is a favorite for kids of all ages. If you’d like to sing carols as a family, check out A Child’s Book of Christmas Carols. The book mentioned above, Advent, Christmas and Epiphany in the Domestic Home, includes activities and projects for children and the whole family, not just for Advent, but Christmas and Epiphany as well.
