Looking for a Christian alternative to the "Elf on the Shelf?" I LOVE the idea of Elf on the Shelf, and anything that will bring joy and delight to my students during the Advent and Christmas Season.
This activity is about having an image of Mary, Joseph and the donkey, each day of Advent, "traveling" a little closer to Bethlehem. The idea is intended to help the students keep their spiritual focus as they prepare for Christmas.
The pdf includes:
Teacher Tips and Ideas for Use
Printable color and black and white images of:
Mary, Joseph and the Donkey
2 Signs that say "Bethlehem" with an arrow
**New: Image of Mary, Joseph, and Baby Jesus to use during
the Christmas season**
I hope the activity brings your students joy as they journey through Advent and Christmas!
Grace and Gratitude
