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!
