Thanks-Giveaway #3 - What's in the Bible? Christmas Bundle & Individual DVD's





Did you see my post on Facebook a few weeks ago expressing my excitement for an upcoming giveaway?  Even though I couldn't share the details at the time, I had to wet your appetite with my good news because the 3rd Thanks-Giveaway is What's in the Bible? products!!!!

And you all know how much I {love} the What's in the Bible? products.

Thus my huge excitement!

The wonderful WITB team has provided us with a Christmas Bundle containing three fabulous products to help your family focus on the true meaning of Christmas.


Our kids love this DVD.  So much so that they watch it in July.   And no, they haven't ever heard of Christmas in July.  They just love hearing about Christmas trees, where Santa Claus originated, and how the calendar system was developed.  Brought to you by the puppets that we have fallen in love with in the WITB DVD's, this DVD focuses solely on Christmas and the meaning behind the holiday.  In a way only Phil Vischer can, topics are covered in a clever and childlike way making it easy to grasp the learning.

A shortened version of the video, your child can read the real story behind Christmas to learn who Santa Claus is, why it's called Christmas, why stockings are hung, who St. Nicolas was, and how it all intertwines together.

One funny difference between the book and the videos is that the puppet name Marcy doesn't wear a headset in the book.  In one of the videos (I believe the Christmas one) a puppet asks Marcy why she always wears a headset.  She explains that it is glued to her head.  My kids noticed right off in the book she was missing the headset.  



The Christmas Memory Book is a "self-directed Christmas activity pack that helps your children unlock their creativity and create a book full of Christmas fun."  As a digital download, you are able to print the fourteen page workbook directly at your printer.  Geared toward elementary aged children or for younger children to dictate to an adult, the child writes and draws about their favorite aspects of Christmas and preforms a Bible Scavenger Hunt to learn about Jesus.  Activities also included:  writing a letter to Jesus, drawing your favorite Christmas meal, Christmas songs, writing poems and a story, interviewing others about their favorite Christmas activities, and drawing.  This would make a precious addition to a child's scrapbook.

But this deal isn't done!  (imagine my best TV commercial voice announcing this statement)

FlyBy Promotions has also provided two single products to giveaway:  the Why Do We Call it Christmas? DVD (already shared) and the What's in the Bible? Volume Ten - Jesus is the Good News!


What's in the Bible? Volume Ten - Jesus is the Good News!
Covering the Gospels, Volume 10 is my favorite What's in the Bible DVD.  I have never heard the Good News of Jesus put so simply yet tie the entire Bible together so well.  At one point in watching the video, Sweet Pea leaned over to me and said, "I'm about to cry."  This video is powerful.  Yet it doesn't play on your emotions.  It simply explains what Jesus did for each one of us.   Read more of my review here....

And here's a sneak peak of the Christmas Video.  Click to view the video if unseen.



We own all of the What's in the Bible? videos and have given them away for gifts because we believe these videos should be in every home.  I truly believe this.  Because, no matter what your age, you will learn something about "What's in the Bible."  Thus, my excitement for this giveaway.



Giveaway:

The third Thanks-Giveaway on our blog consists of two individual DVD's and one Christmas Bundle.

1.  Christmas Bundle:  Buck Denver asks... Why Do We Call It Christmas? book


3.  What's in the Bible Volume 10: Matthew, Mark, Luke, John

These products would be a lovely addition to the Christmas Traditions in your home or to place under the tree for Christmas morning.  And if you don't have a personal use, these would be a wonderful gift for a niece, nephew, or friend.  Be sure to share this giveaway with your family and friends for them to enter as well!

  19. Kay G: My favorite Christmas tradition is that even though my children are 23 and 19 years old, we get up at 4 or 430AM Christmas morning to read the Christmas story and enjoy gifts. We started this when my children were babies because my husband works at our local hospital and has always worked a double 1st and 2nd shift so others could take off to be with their families.

  20. Sarah K. One of my favorite Christmas traditions is having a fondue party!

  21. Regina S. I love everything about Christmas but my favorite with my littles is the 25 books of Christmas. I wrap up 25 books and put them under the tree (most are books we already have). They unwrap one each evening and we read it together, leading up to reading The Night Before Christmas on Christmas Eve.

  39. Stephanie H. I love baking with my mom, sisters, nieces, daughter, and friends and looking at Christmas lights and decorations. My daughter was only 1 1/2 last year but was so excited about everything. She made us go to the neighbor's yard nightly to look at their decorations. She's already spotted a yard decorated this season and got so excited! It's great experiencing Christmas through a child's eyes.

  58. My favorite tradition: every year (14 yrs now for my two stepsons and 4yr and 2yr for my LOs) I get the kids a new photo ornament with the year on it and we pick a picture from that year to put in the ornament; each child gets to hand their own ornaments on the tree. The older two are now 21yr and 17yrs old (we've been doing it since they were 2 and 6yrs old) so they have quite a few ornaments and seeing the different pictures and how they have changed through the years is so awesome. They enjoy having their own personal ornaments to put on the tree too! :)

  60. Jen M. - My favorite tradition so far is our Jesus Birthday Party with friends. My best friend and I have toddlers & babies (3 each). We read story books about Jesus birth, sing and Sign (sign language) songs, decorate cupcakes & sing Happy Birthday to Jesus, & play 'Pin the Hay on the Manger' (not kidding, it's a thing!). It's so fun. Neither of us were raised in Christian households so we are starting our traditions from scratch. We would love to have this new DVD for our party!!

  64. Heather R- Before we open gifts Christmas morning we make cinnamon rolls and orange slices, read the Christmas story from Luke, and then my husband plays hymns on his guitar while the children and I sing and dance around!

  65. Kristen E
    My fav thing about Christmas is going to Christmas Eve church service with the family, it's so simple and just about Jesus.

    ReplyDelete
  66. Megan B - We subscribe to the "three gift method"... Jesus got gold, frankincense and myrrh, and so do we. Our "gold" gift is something special that we really want - just because we're loved. Our "frankincense" gift is something that goes on the body (accessories, clothing, make-up, lotion, etc). Our "myrrh" gift is something for our spiritual lives (a new Bible or devotional, a new worship CD, etc)... so these videos would make excellent myrrh gifts for my sons :)

    ReplyDelete
  67. Amanda S. - My siblings and I always go back home Christmas Eve with our new families, and we still pretend to be like children and our parents still put out the gifts after we go to bed. Then on Christmas morning we still get to enjoy the Christmas magic of waking up and going downstairs to see our tree full of gifts. Then we spend all morning together opening the gifts and enjoying each others company.

  71. Kimberly C. Our kids are still really little so each year it seems like we add our own little traditions but my personal favorite tradition is decorating the tree and the house. When I was little me and my mom would do it together all while playing all her old Christmas music some of it was old quartet gospel, some old instrumental but I do the same at my own house now and I look forward to it every year. I just love this time of year celebrating the birth of our savior, making memories with friends and family.

  72. The kids really love having real candles on the table with the Advent wreath. They also love opening a new window on their Advent calendars every night, and get really excited when there is only 1 window left!

    ReplyDelete
  75. Christy G. Our little family (four kids under six) hasn't quite cemented our own traditions yet (since so much of the holidays is dictated by nap times and early bedtimes yet!). We do up St. Nicholas day (Dec. 6), though, with stockings and gold coins in their shoes. It's been fun to talk about the real St. Nicholas with my older two and figure out ways to bless other people in this season!

    ReplyDelete
  76. Christie H. I don't think I can choose just one favorite Christmas tradition... I love going to our church's Christmas Eve service. I love listening to Christmas music while we decorate the house and later put up our live tree and decorate the tree together. I love the excitement of my now 4 1/2 yr old as we unbox tree ornaments that he remembers from previous years.

    It's hard to choose a favorite one, I love the season of Christmas. I love to share with others, no matter how that looks. Sharing meals, gifts, resources, time, love, etc. Now that my children are 2 and 3, I can't wait to show them the joy in sharing, and serving others during this season. Last year, was the first time I'd ever been depressed at Christmas. I have more compassion now, and a greater need to reach out to others, so that they understand the joy and love of Christ during this time of year.

    Thank you!!

  82. Sarah W. I have too many! I think of ideas for us to show God's love to others as a countdown to Christmas and I love the whole countdown process. I love listening to Christmas music all month, decorating the tree, and watching Christmas movies.

I'm excited for my 2 yr old to be more involved this year!

Instead of shopping on Black Friday we watch Christmas movies and put up our Christmas tree, taking down the Thank you tree at the same time. That night, at dinner, we pile the leaves in the center of the table and take turns reading them off.

    One of our favorite Christmas traditions is baking cookies for Santa on Christmas eve. My two children leave him a plate with a couple of cookies (we eat the rest of the batch) and we also leave him a tamale. Man can not live on cookies alone, right? The kids always check the plate, first thing Christmas morning, and Santa always eats the whole tamale, his glass of milk (milk helps cut the chili burn, lol) and leaves the olives from the tamale and 1 1/2 cookies on the plate! Awesome memories, have been doing this since I was a child! <3

  133. Melissa Ann L. My favorite Christmas tradition is doing the Jesse Tree Devotions. My son is only 2, but I did this with my students when I taught at private school and it's an amazing way to make Christmas Christ-centered and help kids get the big picture chronology of God's redemptive plan. Plus you get to make cool ornaments :) Such Fun!
