It’s so important to always make sure we are keeping Christ in Christmas, and showing our kids what advent season is all about.
This would make an excellent advent activity to add to your family’s season this year. It works as a countdown to Christmas Day with the four candles for each Sunday leading up to Christmas, and one last one for Christmas morning.
You could even pair it with a real advent candle set to make it come to life even more. 🙂
It’s also a great learning activity for your kids, so feel free to use them in your homeschooling and Sunday school classes!
They will practice coloring skills, cutting skills, gluing, reading, and understanding biblical concepts.

What’s Included In This Advent Wreath Activity:
You will be getting 6 pages in this FREE printable activity bundle!
It gives you a guide (no guesswork needed!) to teach your kids about the true meaning of advent and why we celebrate Christmas.
You’ll receive an advent wreath picture for kids to color, and 5 candles for kids to color and cut out, with instructions on how to color them.
Lastly, you will be getting 6 scripture cards – these are the most important!

Example of the First Sunday Advent Candle:
Here is an example of one of the cards you read while doing the advent activity. Feel free to read the scriptures and help your kids memorize them as well…
The 1st Advent Sunday Candle is purple and presents HOPE. The hope and expectancy that Jesus is coming soon (Revelation 3:11).”

Supplies needed for this activity:
Lucky for you, you don’t need to go out and buy anything separately, you most likely have everything you need at home to do this activity.
- The color and learn advent and wreath activity printable (download here)
- Kid friendly scissors
- Crayons or colored pencils – we love these jumbo colored pencils!
- White cardstock
- Laminator (optional)
- Glue or tape for the candles
I highly recommend using thick, 8.5×11 cardstock paper, and I laminated the cards and info sheet!
I like the durability that the laminator offers, and also makes it easy to hang them up on the fridge as a reminder.
You can find this cute pink laminator on amazon here – I have used it for years and it’s wonderful and not expensive. 🙂
As far as printing, here are printer my settings for reference, to make sure everything prints evenly!
Feel free to print and use these as a fun, biblical activity for your kids.
Hang them up in your home, and enjoy celebrating advent with your families and friends. 🙂
