If you’ve been around long, then you know how much I love talking about the imagination and learning. Developing a child’s biblical imagination is a key element of their spiritual development, which is why I am STOKED for the newest Advent Devotional for Kids: Wondering to Bethlehem.
In Wondering to Bethlehem, author Vanessa Myers invites kids to dive into their wonder and imagination as they journey to Bethlehem! Starting December 1 and going through Christmas Day, kids have a daily short reading, prayer prompt, spot to jot down their wondering notes, and an interactive activity that takes them a little deeper into the story. These extra wonders to unpack give kids snapshots of how the Christmas story connects to other parts of the Bible or historical/contextual facts that help bring the story to life.
There’s even a bonus devotion for Epiphany!
Even though it’s a devotional book, it’s very hands-on. Kids get to create and complete their very own passports as they journey through the Christmas story through the daily devotions and activities. The free printable passport stickers are easily accessed via a convenient QR code right inside the book (what kid doesn’t love stickers?), and there’s plenty of space inside the book itself for thoughts and ideas.
It’s fun. It’s simple. It invites kids to use their imagination to explore the Christmas story and the birth of our Savior. What more could you ask for in a kids’ Advent devotional?
