1 XHandwriting - Book 5, Spiritual Crib HandwritingHandwriting - Book 5, Spiritual Crib Handwriting

This handwriting course is also an Advent project for the 24 days before Christmas, December 25. The first page should be begun when school starts again in September. The  words in the example should be practiced in the space below the example. Then the student can copy the words of the meditation onto the blank 5″x7″ box below the practice area.  About two 5″x7″ boxes per week should be completed in handwriting and decorated to be displayed later on during the correct day during December.  The completed verse may be mounted on the red front cover or put somewhere to catch the eye during that day in December.  Letter size is 1/4″ (3/4 of a line) which lends itself well to note-taking and neatness as compared to larger handwriting. This is a great way to stimulate appreciation for the Advent season. Save for future Advents.

1 XAdvent Calendar SET - Family and Twelfth NightAdvent Calendar SET - Family and Twelfth Night

Count  down  the  days  to  Christmas  by  preparing  a  Bethlehem  stable warmed  with  special  visitors  and  prayers  to  welcome  the  Holy  Infant; then  continue  the  joy  and  festivities  of  Christmastide by similarly preparing for the coming of the Magi.  

More than just “opening doors,” this set of two seasonal calendars involves children in their own spiritual preparation for Christmas and Epiphany.  This combination package includes:

  • Daily cut-and-color activities with short prayers, 
  • Ancient poetic tradition of the Church for Advent,
  • Special stickers to keep track of the seasonal devotions,
  • Novenas to be prayed by the whole family.

Family Advent Calendar: Beginning December 1st, children cut out a star, animals,  angel, Joseph, Mary, and finally Baby Jesus, color the figures, and attach them to the stable scene. 

Twelfth Night Calendar: Then beginning December 26th, children cut out and color Jesus, Mary,  Joseph, shepherds, villagers, camels and the three Kings, and attach them to the stable scene.

Daily prayers, the “O Antiphons,” the Christmas Novena, Prayer for the New Year, Novena to the Magi, and the singing of the traditional hymns O Come, O Come Emmanuel and We Three Kings round out the activities for a prayerful preparation for the coming of our Infant King on Christmas and continue through Twelfth night to prepare for the coming of the Holy Kings on Epiphany.
