Felt Advent Calendar with Nativity Scene: Product Review & Giveaway (2 winners)

*Sorry, this giveaway has ended.*

If you recall back in March, I reviewed the Holy Week Easter Banner from heartFELT Truths.  I was thoroughly impressed with how this daily countdown helped prepare our family for our Easter Celebration.  So when Whitney contacted me and asked if I would review her Felt Advent Calendar with Nativity Scene, I was extremely excited!

The package arrived with the felt backdrop and all of the nativity pieces ready to be put up.  I was absolutely ecstatic that there was ZERO prep work.  This time of year always seems to err on the side of pure craziness, so I welcome anything that doesn’t require extra time or effort!  (On a side note, if you want to create your own, Whitney has graciously offered the template for free here.)

 

 

Each day, you add another piece of the nativity scene as you read a short caption of the Christmas Story.  Day 1 is Mary and Joseph.  Slowly, day-by-day, the nativity scene is created.  On Christmas, Baby Jesus is added to the manger.

 

 

 

 

The wise men bringing their gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh.

 

The shepherds tending their sheep.

 

 The angels and the star over Bethlehem.

 

The completed Nativity!

I absolutely love this Advent Calendar for three reasons:

  1. It is simple.  It would be great to use with toddlers and preschoolers.  The daily captions are extremely short (which is perfect for the short attention span of a certain little boy in our house), but it can also be easily extended for older kids.
  2. It helps us focus on the true reason for the season and prepares our hearts to celebrate the birth of Christ.
  3. It is cute, fun, and interactive!

 

How would you like to win one of TWO Advent Calendars with Nativity Scenes being given away (a $45 value)?  Just leave a comment!  

This giveaway is open to U.S. residents only (apologies to my international readers).  The giveaway will end on Friday, November 9 at 10 am (CST).  A winner will be randomly selected shortly after and notified by e-mail.  By entering, you are agreeing to these official rules

 

Good luck!

    I’m so excited for the Advent season this year. My almost 3 year old is finally at the age where truth is “sticking” in fun new ways. This advent calendar will be an awesome teaching tool for him!!

    We would love to win one. I have the template downloaded, but not sure if we could actually make one before ADVENT get here. Maybe too many blogging irons in the fire:) I have 3 kids who would love this! Thanks for hosting this giveaway!

    I am always looking for ways to teach my kids the real reason for the season. My five year old would love reading the daily stories and my two year old would love the hands on aspect.

    I would love to win this, my kids would think this was so fun, they love our wooden manager scene!

  7. Mother Lydia says

    Fantastic! I know what you mean about short attention spans.

    But it seems to me this could also be used with the night before Christmas story — for the kids to have something to do while you read it. Move the pieces around!
