Let's Make a Jesse Tree Dec 26, 2008
This book has the history of the Jesse Tree and so much more. The large patterns for the various ornaments were very easy to follow for a mixed age (3-4 5-9) group of sunday school kids. The final result was glorious. Thanks to a lot of detail in the book.
A Top 10 Tradition in the ONeil Household for over 10 Years! Dec 26, 2008
When Donovan and Ian were little, a CCD Director gave me this book. It has been used in our family every Christmas since and the boys are now 20 and 18yrs old. I adapted it to fit our needs. Rather than making a banner to hang the symbols on, I made the symbols into ornaments and they are hung on the Christmas tree. And over the years that has changed too. We use to place these on the tree with nothing else, in keeping with the Advent season, then on the 24th we would decorate with all the other ornaments and turn on the lights. It really brought home the idea of waiting and preparing. Now we have a seperate tree, smaller, that we have in our prayer corner.
What I have found so amazing is the children's ability to remember the Bible stories just by looking at the symbols. There have been years when we have fallen behind and not been able to place the ornament on the tree on the correct night. So when we finally were able to place them, I would hold them up and the children would tell me the story even tho a year had past. They also have said it is one of the things they want to see every year.
