JYF Seedlings went shopping for our adopted angel tree child on Saturday.  The kids were very sweet while choosing the gifts and wanted to make sure that we had plenty of things that our child would like!  After picking all those gifts out, they wrapped gifts while enjoying a little hot chocolate and a snack.  On Sunday they made Chrismons to donate to Disciples Village.  We discussed the different symbols used for the Chrismons and went into the sanctuary to see what Chrismons decorate our tree.  Each of the children was able to donate several so they were able to bring one home and donate the rest.  Two weeks later we brought a little Christmas cheer to the residents of Disciples Village when we decorated one of their Christmas trees with our Chrismons and went caroling in their hallways!  The kids had a great time and they actually harmonize very well together!  We followed that up with our own little Christmas party.  The kids played some fun holiday games like Christmas themed charades and had a gift exchange set to a Christmas story.  It was a whole lot of holiday fun!!
