Truth in the Tinsel eBook

My friend Amanda from Impress Your Kids just came out with a brand new Christmas eBook TODAY called Truth in the Tinsel: An Advent Experience for Little Hands!

I had the pleasure of previewing it late last week and I am SO impressed with this eBook. It has 24 activities perfect for preschoolers that each emphasize the birth of Christ in a fun, hands-on way!

I was once in a parenting class at our church where someone made the comment that when you think back to your childhood, holiday traditions and family vacations are the cornerstones of those memories. Those are the things you remember. Because of this, I think it is absolutely vital that we infuse our holiday celebrations with the real reasons for the seasons! Taking the opportunity to focus on our Savior this Christmas is one way that I can show my children what our family truly values!

And this book is probably the best resource for preschoolers I have ever seen! I love our Advent Boxes…it is a great way for us to focus on the meaning of Christmas around the dinner table. But Truth in the Tinsel is hands-on…perfect for captivating the attention of the little people in our household. There are 5 parts to each day:  The Clue, The Scripture, The Ornament, The Talk, and More.

And the details of this eBook are beautifully executed! With a Master supply list, a daily supply list, and step-by-step instructions, even those of us with a serious lack of crafting skills can easily complete the activity for each day! And because most of us aren’t home every day in December, Amanda has even provided alternate schedules!

The eBook is priced at only $4.99. I can guarantee you…this will be the best $4.99 you spend this Christmas!!! And you can keep it for the years to come!


  1. I just downloaded the book! This is perfect and exactly what I was looking for to make a memory each day. The scripture & crafts for each day are awesome! Thank you!

  2. What a great idea! I’m trying hard to come up with great, age appropriate advent ideas for my small kids, but I’m not very good at it :) And the clock is ticking! Thanks for the recommendation.

  3. I have been looking for something like this to do with my kids, particularly my almost five year old daughter since she would “get” it this year. We try to focus on the real reason for the season and it would be very helpful to have something to give me ideas on how to do that.

  4. I would love to win this… I Just adore doing Advent things with my kids but a lot of the time, they’re over their heads! I have a little one, and something for preschoolers specifically would be so nice so he could be included!!! Thanks for a fun giveaway!

  5. Traditions ARE important. My sister is adopting a 12yo and the girl has very few happy memories or traditions from her childhood. This would be a fun book to share with them!

  6. I have been looking for a way to teach my 4 and 2 year old the real reason for the season in a fun and creative way. Fingers crossed. Would be fun to win, also would make a great gift for my sisters with small children!

  7. Sounds like a sweet little book. Always looking for ways to continually incorporate our faith into our everyday with my 2 and 4 year old :)

  8. This looks great, and my son loves book so i am trying to get some good Christmas ones! This would be a good starter.

  9. I really love the idea of this book. Creating interactive ways to teach your kids about Advent is just suck a gift to the parents and the kids. Thank you to the author of this book and to I Can Teach My Child for promoting it and doing the giveaway. I would love to win. YAY! Merry CHRISTMAS y’all. :)

  10. This would be great! I was looking at this earlier from a post on “When You Rise,” but decided that I really shouldn’t spend the money on it. I know $3 is a great deal, but things are super tight for us this year and every little bit I don’t spend helps. Thanks for offering the giveaway!!!
