Activity 1 - Time to Talk
Here's some questions to chat over as a family?
What things do you look forward to? Do you get excited about School Holidays, and Birthdays and Christmas?
Why do you look forward to them?
How do you get ready for them?
What does it feel like to wait?
We hope for these things, even though they aren't certain. The gift of Hope from God is different because it is certain.
Activity 2 - "Hang your Hope on Jesus" Stocking.
At Christmas time we often hang stockings up in our homes, and we hope that they will be filled on Christmas morning.
Can you make and decorate a stocking and write the words "Hang you Hope on Jesus" on the stocking to remind you of the Hope God given us this Christmas
