A word wreath can be a Christmas wreath decorated with words from the Bible, an Advent activity for the family, or a Christmas devotional for children, teens, and adults.
A Word Wreath: Creating Christmas Poems provides a guide for this family craft, including suggestions for creating your own traditional or contemporary poems about Jesus. Author Marsha MacLeod shares Scriptures about Joseph, Mary, the shepherds, Simeon, Anna, Herod, and the wise men for children and parents to read together for seven days. Children can select and write a word or words from the Scripture on a piece of paper, perhaps using color or design. Together, the family can attach the paper to a wreath and create a personalized, one-of-a-kind word wreath. MacLeod shares devotional poems she has created at Christmas and offers ideas for us to use to reflect and write on the wonder of the Savior’s birth. She also examines the lyrics of some well-known Christmas carols. This activity guide reminds us that our words can become a gift for family and friends and can help us remember the true meaning of Christmas.
