Christmas is coming! I have a confession to make. I have a serious case of OCD: Obsessive Christmas Disorder! I am the girl that goes all out for Christmas. I am the girl that is excited to see Christmas decor in the stores before Halloween. Ahem…I admit. I have issues.
Two years ago when I was blessed with the idea of Elf on the Shelf Jesus Style and posted it to my blog, I had no idea it would go viral. Last year, I decided to create an advent curriculum based on this idea and Elf on the Shelf Jesus Style Biblical Virtues was born. I poured my very pregnant (9 months preggo!) heart and soul into posting a new virtue each day last Christmas, even after the birth of my sweet baby girl. This year, I turned it into an ebook which you can download for free when you subscribe to my newsletter!
If you aren’t familiar with Elf on the Shelf Jesus Style Biblical Virtues, it is an advent based christian curriculum to use during the month of December. Your elf (or stuffie of your choice) shows up at your house on December 1st and stays til Christmas Day. Each morning, the elf has a lesson based on a different biblical virtue. Each day consists of a short discussion, scripture and an activity to help your child’s understanding of the biblical virtue for that day.
This year, I have created these adorable scripture cards for you to use with your elf. They correspond with each daily lesson of the Elf on the Shelf Jesus Style Biblical Virtues Ebook.
To use these scripture cards with each lesson, print them out. You may laminate them if you want to use them again, or you may print it off as many times as you like.
You have a couple different options for using these cards. You can simply place the scripture card next to your elf (or stuffie of your choice) and your children will find the scripture with the elf. You can also make a game of it. Hide the scriptures around the house and have your children search for the scripture cards. This is especially fun for the days with multiple scriptures. If you choose to do this option, you can explain to your children that we are to treasure God’s word in our hearts. So go on a “treasure” hunt and find God’s word!
I have also included blank cards. You can use these to add more scriptures of your choice to your lessons, or you can use them to write notes from your elf. Be creative! Use them however you like!
I pray that the Elf on the Shelf Jesus Style Biblical Virtues Ebook and these Scripture Printables will be a blessing to you and your family! Here’s to celebrating the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ!!!
