Advent Activities: Tinsel in the Truth - Favorite Activities for Week 1 :)

We are into week 2 of our Tinsel in the Truth journey and we still are loving it! Here's our favourite sessions from week 1. :)

Reading: Luke 1:5-25

Here we made Zechariah with simple materials available at home. The craft actually calls for bubble for Zechariah's mouth but we did not have any hence we decided to use a "bandaid" concept instead. :p

It was a good discussion on obedience and trust in God for Dumping and I :)

Reading: Luke 1:26-38

Here we made Gabriel the Angel as he was the messenger in bringing the news to Mary. We used the remains of some leftover wrapper for this craft. :) I love that I could recycle all these little odds and ends of supplies at home and turn them into something meaningful and fun for Dumpling.

Again, it was a great discussion as we compare the reaction between Zechariah and Mary. 

Are you using Tinsel in the Truth too? Leave me a comment if you are and I will be happy to visit your blog! :)

This activity is part of an Advent Activities series where my co-host Jennifer and I aim to share on a daily basis the various activities we are doing as we lead into Christmas!
