A Christmas tradition that is Christ-centered, fun for the kids, AND promotes reading? It’s like a homeschool mom’s dream come true! A Christmas book countdown is a fantastic way to create memories with your kids this holiday season. I’ve got a fun printable that combines this tradition with a Bible reading plan so you can focus on Christ AND enjoy fun read-alouds!

For the book-loving family, this is a simple and meaningful Christmas book countdown that your kids will remember for a lifetime. Collect some Christmas books and wrap up 25 of them! Print the tags and label each gift. Every day, the kids can unwrap a book to read!

Snuggle up on the couch together with your Bible and the day’s book. Read the scripture passage together and discuss, and say a prayer of thanks, praying the scripture over your children. Then have fun reading the Christmas book they unwrapped!

Don’t have enough books for your Christmas book countdown? No problem. Here are some ideas. 

  • Audiobooks to listen to during a meal, during quiet time, or in the car
  • Fold and staple card stock together into a booklet and make a Christmas book together
  • Use digital books by taping the title of the ebook (or a copy of the ebook cover) to the front of another book or an envelope and wrapping that
  • Buy some great Christmas books to add to your stash (we get a few a year – here’s a list to start with or you can find Christian kids Christmas books on Amazon)

    Hi Tuana! I just want to thank you so much for sharing your tips and wisdom on organizing homeschool and homemaking life. I was able to catch one of your sessions on loop scheduling in the online conference this past summer and It’s been a real game changer in my home this year. Honestly, I felt like I was just trudging along through homeschooling these past couple years and then, to top it off, we welcomed our 5th baby to the bunch in July. There were days before starting school this year that I just cried because I had know idea how it was all supposed to work with a newborn. Anyway, with the the help of your encouragement and tips, it’s been a year of break through for me. I’m still trying to tailor this “loop idea” to our specific needs, but it’s a beautiful thing to finally have a strategy in place that makes sense for my brain. So, Anyway, thank you for taking the time, out of your busy life, to share and encourage other moms like me.
