Amazing Grace, stopping by to print your Advent Chain, which we'll be trying for the first time this Advent. I saw it linked over at catholicmom,com. Thank you for all your wonderful ideas!!

I used your chain last year from my PREP (CCD) class and it was a huge hit! Thank you for updating it for 2014. I attach the chain to an "advent wreath" that can be hung on a door frame or something high. The wreath is a green paper plate with a coloring sheet of a picture of an advent wreath with candles. When it's time to light a candle, they color in the flame. I got such positive feedback from the parents. Thank you and God bless!

This is one of the best Advent projects to create at school and then send home! I have been using it for the last three years! Thank you for creating this activity that truly brings families together for the true meaning of Advent and Christmas!
