Christmas Scripture Chain

With Thanksgiving this week, it is officially time to start thinking about Christmas! (Although truth be told, I've been listening to Christmas music for weeks now!)  I came across the idea of a Christmas scripture chain on Pinterest a while back, but was not really happy with all of the scriptures that were included in the ones I found.  They had some Christmas verses mixed in with some 'normal' verses, but I wanted something that was focused completely on the Christmas story.  So, I decided to create my own!

We printed these out and gave them to families at our church today as a fun activity to do with their kiddos but honestly,  I also had some people without kiddos grab them too! So even if you don't have kids, this would be a nice collection to look at leading up to Christmas.

You can make the chain one of two ways:

1. Cut off #1 and staple it together to make a circle.  Each day you cut off the next verse, and link it together with the one from the day before.

2. Cut them all out and link them together.  Each day take off a verse and then the chain works as a countdown to Christmas.  Just make sure you do take them off in order (not actually counting down), because they go in chronological order.

You can print off your own copy here!

  2. Thank you for posting your scripture chain at Boogieboard Cottage for Masterpiece Monday, I love it! I featured it on my top ten picks this week. Have a great Thanksgiving, Mary

  3. Hi Emily!
    What a great idea and I loved that you wanted to use Christmasy scriptures (not that I don't appreciate all the scriptures ). My husband and I want to continue to remind our girls about the true meaning of Christmas and this is a great way!
    Thanks for a lovely idea,

    1. Thanks, Sami! Yes, we want to make sure our kiddos remember the true meaning of Christmas as well. This is a fun way to have a daily reminder of that :) Thanks so much for stopping by!

  4. This is such a great idea! It is a great way to keep the focus on the true meaning of Christmas!

    1. Thanks, Pat! Glad you stopped by :) Merry Christmas!

  5. This is so fun (for adults too!). Thank you so much for linking and sharing this with us. Great idea!

  6. This is such a brilliant idea! Making crafts on Christmas is truly enjoyable, especially with the kids. What we usually do is browse some good short Christmas poems, put them in some image and print them. They serve as our greetings. This can be an idea, too. Putting every line of Christmas poem in even chain ;-) Thanks for the inspiration.
