The Heart Felt Truths Advent Calendar is a felt display that completes a nativity scene over the period of 25 days. As your family counts down to Christmas, a new piece will be added to the display that corresponds with part of a retelling of the Christmas story. As your children re-read the past portions of the story each day they will begin to memorize the story and the small passages of Scripture that are included in it.
This calendar is very similar in concept to Noel Piper’s “Noel Calendar.” If you are familiar with the Noel Calendar, you will find the story is different and that the materials are obviously very different, but the concept is the same. All ages will enjoy this activity but it is especially great for establishing Christ-Centered Christmas traditions for Christian families with toddlers, preschoolers and young school age children.
Below are the FREE patterns and instructions for designing your own felt Advent Calendar. If you are interested in ordering a felt advent calendar that has been completed already or ordering a DIY Kit (complete with instructions, pre-sewn backdrop, patterns, and all necessary felt) , please visit our Etsy Shop to order. We can also do a variety of custom orders such as large felt displays for churches, custom colors, or custom DIY packets for women’s group activities. We have calendars for sale throughout the year in various background colors.
