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)
