In order to help kids remember each of the people in the lineage of Christ, we wrap a tiny object representing their story and put it in a small numbered glass jar. Each night we open the next jar, pull out the little envelope containing the mystery object and replace it with a tea light candle. We also light all the candles in the previous nights’ jars. When they open the envelope they guess who the object might represent. Then we read the devotional, sing the corresponding hymn/carol and finally we listen to a section of Handel’s Messiah while we enjoy a yummy treat. Here’s a list of the objects for each week with a link to a printable coloring page of the same object. The images are simple enough that they can be cut out and hung up for display. You can also write the person who it represents on the back of each picture for quizzing purposes.
