Jesse Tree Brick Challenge

If you’ve been around Proverbial Homemaker very long, you know that we LOVE the Jesse Tree tradition in our home during Christmas season! This year, we decided to try something a little different to shake things up. We’re doing a Jesse Tree Brick Challenge to work those imaginations, build skills, and burn the story into their little minds and hearts!

Jesse Tree BRICK Challenge - Using Legos to complete the Jesse Tree advent activity!

This is a fun twist on a Christ-centered tradition that is sure to delight your children. It starts December 1. Will you join us?

Jesse Tree Brick Challenge

  • Read the scripture for the day
  • Discuss how the story points to Jesus
  • Discuss the symbol and how it relates to the story
  • Hang the ornament on the tree
  • Complete the Build It task and/or the Extra Challenge Task(s) (these are building prompts and not detailed instructions)

Getting Started

  • Duplex document has the symbol and title on one side and the reading and brick challenges on the other side.
  • There is also a single-side option.
  • Print and laminate the set of your choice, punching a hole in the top for hanging on the tree.
  • You could also tape/glue the pieces onto a tree cut out from poster board.
  • Reading Plan
    • Includes the scripture readings and challenge prompts (you could use it with an existing ornament set/devotion).
    • Follows the one at the Reformed Church of America site. You can find a devotion there to accompany this plan.
    • Take pictures of your creations or save them in a big display as you go!

  1. Thanks so much for linking up with us on the Hip Homeschool Hop! What a great Advent idea! My son used to love Legos, but I never would have thought to incorporate them into our Jesse Tree. I’m so glad you shared it with us.

    1. Hi Tara!

      Sorry about that. Sometimes the email goes to the spam folder, so make sure to check there. If it’s not there, try entering your email address one more time to get a new one sent. If it doesn’t work, I can email them to you at the address you used for this comment. Thanks!

  2. I am so excited to try this, but I can’t get the e mail link. I’ve tried 3 times and it’t not in my spam folder πŸ™ Could you please send it to me? Thank you!! Can’t wait to get started!

    1. Done! πŸ™‚ I commented in the email I sent you about checking your spam folder. Now that I re-read your comment here, I see you can ignore that. πŸ˜‰ Sorry about the inconvenience! Hope you enjoy them.

  3. First of all, this is AMAZING! Jesse Tree and Legos are two of our very favorite things around here! I have tried a couple different emails with no luck (including the junk folders) Is there any other way I could get the link? Thank you so much!

  4. Um, nevermind, it came through to one of them now. I guess I was just too excited. πŸ™‚ Can’t wait to do this with my son! Thanks again!

  5. I have tried registering several times and I’ve checked my inbox and spam folder and still haven’t received this. Could you email it to me? I know my boys will love this!

    Hi, I have tried several times to get the download or the email and it isn’t working… can you send to me too?
    Thanks
    This looks awesome!!

  7. Hi I have tried a few times to download the Lego Jesse tree info and have not received it in my regular mail or my spam folder. I am very excited to do this with my boys this year. Could you please send it to me at mcmanjf@aol.com. Thank you so much.

  8. I, too, am extremely excited to receive the Lego Challenge including the Jesse Tree advent for the Action Bible. I did check my junk and didn’t see it there. It may just be lost in cyberspace trying to make its way to Uganda where I live as a missionary. Blessings to you!

        1. Actually, I just typed your name in the search on my email and found them! Thank you for sharing! My boys are very excited!

        2. I got the Lego Jesse Tree but was also interested in receiving the Reading plan for the Action Bible and the Introduction Jesse Tree. Is it possible to send those to me as well? πŸ™‚

  9. This looks great; however, I’ve signed up twice and have checked junk mail and still have not received the download. Please let me know if I need to do something more to get this download. My son is super excited to be able to use his Lego’s for our Jesse Tree readings this year!
    Thanks,
    Rebekah

  10. Could you email it to me as well? I’ve tried several times yesterday and today! I’m looking forward to trying this out!! Thanks so very much!!

  11. I was so excited to see this! My son is going to love doing legos instead of coloring! I’m also having problems finding the automatic download email… Would you mind sending me a link/file.

  12. Thank you so much for creating and sharing this! Lego is the language of my 10 year old son. Looking forward to sharing these with the kids and praying it opens their hearts further to the true message of Christmas. Blessings!

  13. Do you have any pictures of this project – either completed or in progress?? I am such a visual person, I don’t really get how we are supposed to do this just from the description. Thanks!!!

    1. Not yet! πŸ™‚ you just need to use the images on the ornaments to spark the imagination! The building challenges are for the kids to be creative and come up with a “snake” or “ark” or whatever it is based on the blocks they have and their creativity.

  14. This is really neat… we’re a couple days into it and having such sweet as well as many fun moments as a family. A fellow homeschooler sent me the link to your blog and I’m grateful she did. Thanks for putting this together and sharing πŸ™‚ ~Melissa

  15. I am not seeing the email to print off the LEGO challenge. It said that it went through yesterday, and I have checked my spam. Could you help me out? Thanks! We are looking forward to doing this together.

    1. On 11/28 I removed the email form and put direct links in the post. Feel free to download them there! πŸ™‚ Just scroll toward the bottom and find the note I put in red text. The download links are below that.

  16. Hi Tauna,
    Thank you so much for very generously sharing your hard work. I appreciated finding your site very much. I have successfully downloaded a couple of items and would like to request a download for the Lego Jesse Tree Plans but cannot find a way to do so. Could you please let me know how to proceed? Thank you!
    Kind regards,
    Megan
