Christmas Countdown Day 3

With a busy week end,
we fell a bit behind on our
Advent activities-
and, trust me,
I bet we will be behind a few more times
as this crazy month progresses...

So.....
we did ALL the Bible readings and activities from
today...
...from Days 3, 4, and 5.

But I am still splitting them up into three separate posts,
so as not to overwhelm everyone with my wordiness...

Day 3

Good old Chester was hanging out...
...ON the refrigerator door,
with a little hint for the kiddos.

His little message of 
"Hee! Smile! Laugh! Hee!"
applies to the story of Zechariah
because he and his wife,
Elizabeth,
had never been able to have a child,
and God gave them this joyous gift with
the pregnancy of John the Baptist.

For our craft...
 ...the kiddos put together...
 ...a Zechariah Face Ornament.
(Baby Blue was a good observer of all the kiddos'
activities...)  :0)

Here are...
...the completed ornaments.

The mouths are made out of giant bubble wrap
bubbles,
which the kiddos got to pop in order to "seal"
Zachariah's mouth-
just like the angel Gabriel did in the story.
I made the kiddos wait to pop the mouths until
everyone was done making their ornaments...
...which proved more difficult for some than
others...

Here...
video
...is a video clip of the
big "popping" moment...

(Do y'all see WHY Little Wild Man has the 
nickname that he does?)  ;0)
