Review and discount: Truth in the Tinsel – an Advent Experience for Little Hands

November 29, 2012

The Advent season begins this Sunday! How will you be celebrating Advent with your family? Here are some recommendations.

First, I recently had the chance to read the book Truth in the Tinsel: An Advent Experience for Little Hands. The author, Amanda White, wrote this book when her children were 3 and 5 (which is how old my daughters are this year) but she has had families email her that they use it with their older children too. Truth in the Tinsel offers 24 days of Scriptures, crafts, discussion, and activities to help you keep your family centered on Christ during the Christmas season.

She presents an ornament craft each day that you can create with your kids; if crafts aren’t your thing she also offers printable ornaments here. I am not super crafty so I really appreciated that Amanda gives you a shopping list that clearly lists everything you’ll need for each project. You can use these ornaments on your Jesse Tree or on a regular Christmas tree. I also liked the printable “clues” for each day’s story that you can slip into a regular Advent calendar, or if you prefer, you can make a paper chain to use to reveal each day’s clue. Here’s mine. Crafts are obviously not my strong suit, and we only have a black-and-white printer, but it still achieves its purpose.


I’m thrilled that Amanda is offering 20% off Truth in the Tinsel with coupon code CULTIVATE. Go here to purchase the ebook or the printable ornaments.

Also, Truth in the Tinsel was just released in Spanish! Go here to purchase La Verdad en el Oropel.

Truth in the Tinsel is great for children who are not yet old enough for a Jesse Tree. However, we plan to do both with our family. We have our Jesse tree set up already and are really excited about starting our ornaments Sunday. Here are the free Jesse Tree printables from Christmas Your Way that we will be using for our tree. Also, here’s a free printable Advent devotional from Ann Voskamp that would be great for older children.
