A wonderful activity for anyone celebrating the coming of Jesus' birth and for people looking for a way to spread the Good News!
Print this out on 8-1/2 x 11" or larger paper and have kids color the Biblical-based Advent scene of Mary and Joseph traveling to Bethlehem where Mary will give birth to Jesus. Kids will also reflect on Matthew's Gospel as well as ways they can help prepare for Jesus' arrival.
Placemats can be colored and donated to local nursing homes, sent with groceries from your local food pantry, sent to service men and women, provided to soup kitchens, or used to spread the word in a variety of other ways.
This is a fun way to reflect on the true meaning of Advent!
