How can we keep Christmas giving Christ-centered, especially with young kids?

Some thoughts from John Piper:

Some resources that we’ve found helpful to focus our family’s attention on Jesus and build anticipation of the excitement of his birth are:

1) Three very helpful  Advent Calendar Packs from the Good Book co. with readings and activities for families in the lead-up to Christmas.

2) A series of story books for advent. These stories are well told, provide some historical background to Jesus’ birth, with some helpful application along the way. The series so far includes : Jotham’ s Journey and  Tabitha’s Travels.
