We are doing a Jesse Tree this year. What I do is I put a coloring page (ornament) and a suprise and hide it. They find the treasure and then get to color the page and I tell them the story associated with what they are coloring. The love it, and love that its a daily things (advent type of thing). http://www.osv.com/Portals/0/images/pdf/JesseTree.pdf This is the website.

For the older child, you could organize a lot of mini-lessons by making a great Advent calendar (for use next year, probably). I like the third one down on this blog - http://bugaboocorner.blogspot.com/2009/10/more-advent-calendar-ideas.html. The blog recommends using tins, but I painted matchboxes instead. In the boxes: Scripture verses/inspirational quotes, activities like shopping for something to give to charity, small objects like bells. For example, you could include an object that represents a Christmas tradition from a different country, and then build a lesson on that.  If you make a much bigger Advent calendar, you could have a broader range of stuff in the drawers, like small books, CDs, votive candles, etc.  Basically, you could use this idea to complement the lessons you want to do.
