Day 1 - Short and Easy Advent Read-Alouds

Welcome to Day 1 of 5 Days of Easy Advent Ideas That Won't Overwhelm!

Day 1

Grab an Advent read-aloud that is flexible enough to be read a few days in a row and forgotten a few days in a row. Books or activities that have to be kept to a schedule tend to overwhelm us in the midst of everything else going on. 

Recent guest Marty Machowski has written an Advent devotional for families like ours - Prepare Him Room does not have a reading for every day, so if you get busy and can't get to it every night, you're not missing out. 

There's is also the excellent Jesus Storybook Bible Advent reading guide, which is about as easy peasy as you can get. And free. You will need a copy of The Jesus Storybook Bible.

Four weeks to go!

If you have a short Advent devotional that your family has enjoyed, please share in the comments. We'd love to hear about it!
