Many families observe the age-old tradition of the Advent wreath and candles. Still, with younger kids in the house, you may want to consider also introducing your family to a printable Advent wreath coloring page activity as well. 

This was designed keeping in mind families with young children who enjoy hands-on activities. 

What is Advent?

The word “Advent” comes from the Latin word “Adventus,” which means “Coming.”

The Advent season begins on a Sunday and consists of the four Sundays leading up to Christmas morning.

It’s a time to be intentional about preparing your family for the beauty of Christmas day, the birth of Christ. 

Now, more than ever, when Christmas has become so commercialized, we need Advent activities to keep our focus on the true meaning of Christmas.

May your family use this activity to grow closer to God and find greater joy in celebrating Christ’s birth this year.

How to Use The Printable Advent Wreath Coloring Page and Candles Activity

I recommend printing pages 3, 4, and 5 on white cardstock for durability,

especially as this Advent activity should last until Christmas morning.


This Color and Learn Advent Wreath and Candles Activity includes:

  • 1 Advent wreath coloring page
  • 5 Advent candles to color
  • 6 Advent Cards to guide your devotional and family discussions on each Advent Sunday and Christmas morn.

Start the 1st Sunday of Advent by encouraging your child to color in the Advent wreath and Advent candle number 1.

Younger children may need a little help cutting the candles out for the activity.

I recommend cutting each candle when you are ready to glue it onto the wreath to avoid misplacing the candles halfway through Advent.

Advent Candle Colors

Each Advent candle is colored purple, pink, or white, dependent on the day of Advent.

A purple candle represents the 1st, 2nd, and 4th Sundays of Advent.

A pink candle represents the 3rd Sunday of Advent.

A white candle represents the Christmas day candle.

To help inspire your family’s Advent devotionals, guide cards explaining what each candle represents and a foundational Bible verse for each are included.
