We can’t wait for December 25th to come!
In fact, the weeks leading up to Christmas are a special time for God's people to join together in anticipation of Christ's birth. This time is called Advent. We at Kids Corner hope this “Gifts of Kindness” Advent calendar activity and devotional will help you not only count down the days until Christmas, but also prepare your hearts for the greatest of gifts, Jesus Christ.
This year, Advent starts on Sunday, December 3rd. Included in this Advent calendar activity are 22 dated ornaments (one for each day of Advent) and 5 family devotionals.
Each Sunday: Read the week's devotional together and reflect on the importance of giving kindness and serving others. On Christmas day, read the special bonus devotional!
Each day: Commit to giving one “Gift of Kindness” to someone in your life. Write the gift of kindness on that day's ornament and hang the ornament on a string, your Christmas tree, or the wall. Invite your whole family to join you in giving daily gifts of kindness.

As Christians, we want to tell a bigger story. We want our children to know that they are a part of God’s big story where God is the main character of the story. He’s got a restoration project in place to save every square inch of His creation from the sin in it. God sent His son to save creation, and now we (and our children) are called by God to restore creation. God is fixing it, and we can help.
That puts us all in God’s story. God has gifted us with particular skills and talents so that we Christians can play our part in that restoration project. The Prairie Center for Christian Education has developed a set of ten Biblical characteristics called “through-lines” that can help us all, parents, teachers, ministry leaders, and children, to understand what our roles are. These characteristics weave through the Bible, and describe a calling to “be,” not simply to “do.” And what does God call us to “be?” He calls us to be Servant Workers, to be Justice Seekers, to be Earth Keepers, to be Community Builders. He calls us to be Creation Enjoyers, Idolatry Discerners, Order Discoverers, and Beauty Creators. And in all of these, He calls every disciple to be God Worshippers and Image Reflectors.
Here we get a wider picture of the roles that God has called us to be as Christians. Are these descriptors the only ones? That’s a good discussion. In this ebook, you'll see each through-line and get some suggestions of how ministry leaders can intentionally shape their curriculum and leadership styles. I’ll also give suggestions of how families can create faith-formative activities that help children learn what a Christian can be.
In the Kids Corner episode “There’s an Ape for That,” Skink and his gang are bullying Scooter, Morrie, and their new friend Kenan. The three boys feel embarrassed, angry, and afraid of what might happen next time. Unsure of how to make the bullying stop, the boys decide to try to take revenge. Have you ever witnessed or been a part of a bullying situation like this? Check out this booklet because you or someone you know has been bullied. And because of the bullying, you too may feel afraid, sad, angry, confused, or embarrassed.
In these pages, you will find stories and advice about bullying from many different angles:
Power Tool #1: God and Me
Power Tool #2: Friends Helping Out
Power Tool #3: Am I a Bully?
Power Tool #4: Everyone’s Connected
As you listen to and read the following stories, watch for power: Who has it? Who needs it? Who helps to balance it out? Look for ways that you can help restore God’s vision of community. You could do everything in this booklet by yourself, but it was designed to be shared in community with your friends and family. We invite you talk about these Power Tools with those you trust.

What’s a Mezuzah? Mezuzah is a Hebrew word that means “doorpost.” A mezuzah is a scroll containing scripture from Deuteronomy 6:4-9. . For hundreds of years, Jewish believers have placed mezuzahs in cases on the doorposts of their homes. Whenever they walk in or out of their door, they see the mezuzah and it reminds them to keep God’s word on their hearts, to teach their children God’s word, and to carry God’s word with them wherever they go. Some people put a mezuzah on every door of their home, while others only put the mezuzah on their front door.
Kids Corner Connection: Listen to KC’s The Big Story program. Liz and Lucille find an old Bible left behind by the founders of Terrene. The mayor of Terrene wants to put it in a museum. But is that where God’s word should be? This program focuses on the importance of teaching kids God's word—just like the mezuzah scroll reminds us! After listening, make this mezuzah craft to help remind you that God’s word should be on your hearts. Hang it on your room’s doorpost or somewhere in your house that you will see it daily!
