Show kids the real story of Advent
Read this Advent devotional with your family daily during the season of Advent. If your family is making a Jesse Tree, these kid-friendly devotions can help you explain the meaning behind the symbols to younger family members.
We imagined that you or an older child might read the Scripture passage and devotion aloud, while younger children color the day’s picture. If you’d like more context for a particular story, you can pull out your Bible and read the whole passage listed for that day, rather than shorter selection included with the devotion. You can all ponder the “wonder” questions together.
In this family Advent devotional:
- 25 daily Advent devotions and Bible stories for families to read together.
- “I wonder…” questions to prompt curiosity and conversations.
- Colorful illustrations to bring each day’s Bible story to life.
- Ideas for making your own Jesse Tree.
Recommended age group for devotions: We created these devotions for families with kids who are elementary age and younger. (If your children are teenagers, they might prefer the devotions we’ve developed for individuals.)
