The Jesse Tree

This is the site that I used to make my own Jesse Tree a few years ago. They also have a book for celebrating Advent that I have used for years and found it to be very helpful!

Domestic-Church.Com: Fridge Art: The Jesse Tree: "The Jesse tree is a symbol of Jesus' family tree.
It also takes us through that first long Advent which lasted from the Fall to the Incarnation.
After one of our children has lighted the Advent wreath and we have sung an Advent song ('Oh Come, Oh Come Emmanuel' is my favorite) another child hangs the symbol for that day on the Jesse tree. Then Dad or one of the children reads the Bible passage and we ask questions and talk about the reading.
A Jesse tree can look like this; it can be made of wood dowels drilled and glued, rough sticks lashed together, wire, a banner wall hanging or even a large poster. "
