TO MAKE: Print and cut out the Sabbath Day Activity advent calendar for each child. Cut between each wordstrip so children can fold and tear them off as they do them (not cutting at the top of wordstrips). Punch holes at the top of calendar and tie a 20″ piece of yarn to hang it on the wall. Candy Treat: Ahead of time, place 14 pieces of candy in a zip or snap-close plastic bag.
THOUGHT TREAT (when appropriate): Welcomed Wilderness Manna. Serve some bread in the shape of rolls to look like the manna provided by the Lord to the Israelites (Exodus 16:11–15).
