The Jesse Tree: An Advent Activity

Help families journey through the family tree of Jesus this Advent!


The Jesse Tree is an ancient tradition for the weeks leading up to Christmas. It’s been spotted in images that are over 1,000 years old! Since then, believers from various backgrounds have used the Jesse Tree to reflect on Jesus. From December 1 to Christmas Day, believers reflect on a different member of Jesus’ family tree.

With this Jesse Tree Advent Activity, each family will receive a devotional with printables and/or stickers to create their own Jesse Tree throughout the season of Advent.

It’s a fun way to count down to Christmas, and it keeps kids centered on Jesus during the Christmas season. Using the Jesse Tree reminds kids that God’s plan to send Jesus wasn’t an accident or a random thought – it’s been in place since the beginning.

Included in this download is a printable Jesse Tree and ornaments as well as family devotional guide with daily reading prompts, weekly discussion ideas, and more. The “ornaments” are meant to be printed as stickers, but can also just be printed and cut out for your tree.
