  Advent skit for children 
When it's time to set up the Advent wreath, let your kids creatively kick off the Advent season for your faith community with Reimagine Advent!

There are lots of ways to Reimagine Advent
. . . . A reporter gives us the scoop on "The Advent Wait" and the puppets who have gathered because "Jesus is worth the wait." 
. . . . Children read poems as the candles are placed in the Advent wreath - candles for hope, peace, joy and love. 
. . . . Add in some bubbles of hope, balloons of joy, a peace bucket band , hats, mittens, boots & hair nets for skits about love and you are almost there!

When the musical ends, the Advent wreath and candles will be ready for the season and everyone will be reminded of the light that Jesus brings . . . a light that we get to share with the world. 

"The L is for love and God's love is so kind.  It's good and unending, the best you can find.
  The O is for over and under and far.  God's love always reaches wherever we are.
  The V is for volume.  There's no need to yell.  In fact, when you're gentle, your love will be swell.
  The E is for easy.  I wish it would be; Love's not always easy, on this we agree.
So place the LOVE candle.  It's flame is divine.  You know God will guide you, so let your light shine."
