As a little kid, I remember loving the countdown to Christmas. It was always so much fun! We’d mark the days off on a calendar and participate in fun holiday activities like baking cookies, singing Christmas songs and Christmas parties. Now that I’m a mom, I like to count down the days until Christmas with Peyton. But I also have another memory from my childhood, Precious Moments. When I was growing up, having your very own Precious Moments figurine was a coveted moment. Many received them as gifts for their first birthdays or baptism or first communion. But now, you can have Precious Moments help you count down the days until Christmas!
Another fond childhood memory was our nativity scene my grandmother put up every year. I used to sit and stare at it for hours. Precious Moments has taken so many of my favorite childhood memories and pulled them all together with their Nativity Advent Calendar. It’s full of 24 figurines to help you create the perfect nativity scene.
Just in time for Christmas in July is the new Precious Moment Nativity Advent Calendar. Hand-crafted with lots of detail these little resin characters have the same Precious Moments characteristics we all love but also help tell the story of baby Jesus’s birth.
Along with these adorable figurines is a book that tells a little bit of the story for each day. So each night, you can sit around and read the story, then open the corresponding day and remove your figurine. As the month goes by you’ll see your nativity starting to take shape with the final figurine is baby Jesus.
We really love this set. Peyton sat and looked over each and every character and she read the whole story from front to cover in one sitting. She was curious as to how all these characters fit together. With the wise men, lambs, shepherds, angels, Mary, Joseph and baby Jesus all help tell the story, little by little each day.
From a practical perspective, I love how everything is kept together in one little box. So when the holidays are over clean up is a snap, plus it’s ready to go for next Christmas if put away properly. Now I did make one little adjustment, I glued a little envelope on the back of our set so I could keep the storybook in there and not have to worry about misplacing it.
So get a jump start on your holiday shopping and order your own Precious Moment Nativity Advent Calendar. There’s only 21 more Saturday’s until the countdown begins!
