Jesse Tree Ornaments and Activities Packet for Kids
The tradition of the Jesse Tree is inspired from the book of Isaiah chapter 11.
And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots. (Isaiah 11:1)
This wonderful Advent activity for families helps celebrate God’s great plan that begins at Creation and leads up to the Birth of Jesus.
Jesse Tree Printable Activity #1
Color the Jesse Tree ornament for the day that appears in a small circle and then cut it out. Children will then glue it onto the Christmas tree picture on the page. Each day, your children can add to their Jesse Tree page.
For each day, you can study the ‘Story behind the Ornament’ as a family or class.
Jesse Tree Ornament Activity #2
Cut and hang a ribbon long enough to hold all 25 countdown cards. You may also use a piece of construction paper or poster board, if you prefer. Have your child color a card and clip it onto the ribbon to create a Jesse Tree bunting, if you are using ribbon. Or, if you want to use construction paper or a piece of poster board, you can work on making a Jesse Tree display.
Again, for each day, you’ll want to study the ‘Story behind the Ornament’ as a family or classroom. Additional blank cards are included in this printable to allow your children or family to choose other stories from the Bible that stand out as markers to Christ’s Birth.
Jesse Tree Printable Activity #3
There is a daily Jesse Tree writing activity that is included for older children and students.
Don’t worry if you can’t commit to doing this every day. If you want to include these writing activities but just want to choose to do it every few days or once a week, that’s okay and will still be enriching!
