December 21: Surprise Ride- Christmas Caroling

*Today's gift is a note that reads, "Surprise Ride!" or a set of keys...anything that indicates you'll be loading up in the car!
  • Read Revelation 5:12.
"In a loud voice they were saying:

'Worthy is the Lamb, who was slain,
to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength
and honor and glory and praise!'”

  • Give your children the gift and let them open their "Surprise Ride" certificate.

  • Load up the family in the car and as you drive make a list of your favorite Christmas songs.

  • Stop at a nursing home, or make several stops at the homes of family and friends to sing your favorite Christmas songs.

  • After you're finished, pray with your children. Thank God for Christmas music and ask Him to bless your hearts continually through the gift of music.

*I always plan this advent activity to go along with our church calender's annual caroling night. If Christmas caroling is out of your family's comfort zone, try a variation of this activity. Your family could also choose to sing at home (turn out all the lights except your shimmering tree...that will help set the mood!). You could also opt for uploading your favorite Christmas carols to a CD that you can listen to on Christmas morning.
