Jesse Tree Printables are an easy and fun way to make memories with your kids this Christmas season and teach them Scriptural truths at the same time celebrating Advent by looking at the lineage of Jesus. Each ornament tells a Bible story as you weave your way through the Old and New Testaments, culminating in the story of Christ’s birth on Christmas Day.
Ainsley and Garrett both love doing our Jesse Tree Printables every day. We are doing this in place of our regular devotional time. The kids color their ornaments and listen to the story. Then we glue the ornament onto paper (I use scrapbooking paper), holepunch, and thread a ribbon or piece of yarn through it to hang on the tree.
Our “Jesse Tree” is made of branches gathered from the yard and placed in this large glass vase. Use what you have, gathering branches and using anything for a tree holder–even a tin can! (The kids would love decorating that!) There are 25 ornaments and stories, so that you can begin on December 1st. However, it’s not too late for you to get your family in on this–even though it is the 15th, you can just do one in the morning, one in the afternoon, and one before bed until you catch up.
We keep our Jesse Tree as a centerpiece on the table throughout the season. This year I have loved watching my 3-year-old, Garrett, making the connections as we read through the Jesse Tree Printables. I’m thrilled to see him understanding and learning how everything in the Bible points to Jesus.
