Advent Activities 2021

Activities listed on the Advent Candle Activity cards.

Here are some things you can do to engage your faith & family during Advent this year.

We'd love to see your Advent activities and boxes in action. Email us a photo and a story at contact@christchurchdavenport.org or text us at 563.649.4440.

  • Christmas Light Scavenger Hunt
  • Option #1
  • Option #2
  • Hot Cocoa & Movie Night
  • Hot Cocoa Recipe if you're feeling up to it :) No judgment for those store-bought packets either (those mini marshmallows!)
  • Movie suggestions
  • Flashlight & Flame:
  • In a dim or dark room, light a candle. Then shine a flashlight against the candle and flame, you will notice that you see a shadow of the candle, but there is no shadow from the flame. The Christmas parallel to this experiment is that where the light is, there are no shadows because there is no darkness in the light of Jesus.
