and the winner is….
These Ornaments are based on the simple Jesse Tree Advent devotional found at this link:
The devotional is great for children, and they can use these ornaments as colouring pages, and then hang them on the tree. I included text from the associated Scripture passages on each ornament as a way to reinforce ideas from the stories.
I learned so much from tackling these—like what King David’s crown might have looked like, What kinds of whales and large sea creatures might have populated the Mediterranean, when modern prayer shawls came into use, and the tools of a carpenter of Jesus’ day. Good stuff.
