Have you considered a family advent reading during the month of December?  Kimberly and I are constantly searching for a solid and age-appropriate advent reading for our family.  Last year we used one that was a little too advanced for our boys.  This year, we have yet to start an advent reading.  But, I have been reviewing one called The Jesse Tree from Corrie Ayers.  Check out the biblical basis for Jesse Tree here.

There shall come forth a shoot from the stump of Jesse and a branch from his roots shall bear fruit.

Isaiah 11:1
