Decorate a tree branch or Christmas tree with 24 easy-to-make symbols and read short stories about who each symbol represents. Templates for the symbols and Bible references are provided along with a message about the meaning of each symbol. Create an Advent calendar with a difference for children and all the family to enjoy.
