Have you heard about the Jesse Tree? This Advent Devotional has been around for a while, but I have just recently found this and I am looking forward to introducing my kids to it this year!
So, what is the Jesse Tree? First you need to know who Jesse was. He was the father of King David from the Old Testament. When looking at the genealogy of Jesus, Jesse is usually looked at as the first person. The Jesse Tree is therefore Jesus’ family tree! During Advent, we will be making our own tree and learning more about Jesus.
There are many different resources to help us with this! Some are free, others have a fee to go with them. I can’t wait to share what I have found with you today! (Please remember that some of these are from previous years. This year Advent Day 1 is November 30th. All you need to do is just change the dates for this year.)
There are numerous books if you wanted to do an Amazon search. I have added two of them to my Kindle Unlimited library (I love this library!).
You can’t do a devotional with kids without something fun to go with it 🙂 Here are some fun sites that I have found with printables for you to use with your families!
I found so many more…but if I continued to list them all, I would be here all day! Check out my Advent Board on Pinterest if this is an activity you want to try!
Later I will be sharing all the Advent activities that I have found that are not Jesse Tree related 🙂
Do you use the Jesse Tree for Advent? I would love to read your stories of using it! Please share them with me!!
