Make An Advent Wreath

The season of Advent begins on the fourth Sunday before Christmas day, Nov. 30th for 2014. The term Advent, means coming. The Advent season helps us prepare our hearts to remember the first coming of our Savior and the reason he came--his birth was for his death; his death was for our birth. Advent also reminds us that Jesus is coming again to separate the sheep from the goats, the believers from the unbelievers. Making an Advent wreath is a great way to prepare the family for Jesus' birthday celebration!

A Candy Cane Christmas Skit

Begin by reading Luke 2:8-20, then continue with the skit.

Storyteller: "Do you know what a legend is?"

"A legend is a story handed down through generations, it is believed to have a historical basis although there is no proof that it is true (a myth)."

"Well, I have a legend to tell you. It is about a candy maker from Indiana who wanted to invent a candy that was a witness to Christ."

"Does anyone know what kind of candy that could be?"
(let children yell out and answer)

"Yes, that is right, a Candy Cane!"

"Lets examine the candy cane and see how it is a witness to Christ. In Matthew 16:18 God says..."

Make a Jesse Tree for Christmas

Jesse Trees date back to the middle ages. Even some ancient cathedrals have Jesse Tree designs in their stained glass windows. The idea for a Jesse Tree is inspired from Isaiah 11:1, A shoot will come up from the stump of Jesse; from his roots a branch will bear fruit. (Jesse was the father of King David.) In Matthew chapter one, the Messiah, Jesus, is traced from the line of King David, back to Abraham. 

J
esse Tree ornaments depict the Messianic line of Jesus from the Old and New Testaments, and tell the redemption story. To make a Jesse Tree, choose an interesting tree branch from which to hang your ornaments, and then anchor it in a bucket of sand; sew fabric ornaments onto a tree-shaped banner; or hang the ornaments onto a traditional Christmas tree.

Christmas Game: Right and Left

Instructions: Pass a small gift RIGHT then LEFT as you hear those words in this story of Christmas. The last person holding the gift at the end of the story wins! You can also use this idea by writing your own story for any time of year.

Alternate ideas: keep passing the gift like a "hot potato" until you hear the word, then reverse direction. That way bigger groups could get more people involved. 

You could also write a story, with a spiritual emphasis, about spring cleaning for a ladies gathering. "Create in me a clean heart O God and renew a RIGHT spirit within me."
~ Psalm 51:10

"We all know the story of Christmas well but . . .

Our church used one of your plays with great success . . . Thank you for
your ideas and your website.
~ Lynn Rhodes

I just wanted to let you know what a blessing this website has been to me.
I am teaching children's church on Sunday nights and had ran out of ideas
to use. I prayed that God would give me some sources. Well, He did, alright!  This website!  I was up until almost 2:00 A.M. one night searching it out.
What a wonderful site!  I love it!  It has such great ideas. 
Thank you so much! 
~ Another sister in Christ, Mable D.

Its hard for a small church like ours to afford Bible curriculum and

Shepherd Game

Divide into 2 teams. Draw on the floor with chalk or masking tape a "path" for the sheep to be herded through. Tape a few boxes to the floor (ends cut out-If doing this outside use croquet hoops pushed into the ground. Teams line up on opposite ends of the track. Give each team a broom and 6 cotton balls (for younger children a small rubber ball can be used). The object is to heard the sheep down the path, through the "tunnels," to the other side and back. The team, where every child completes the course, wins. Talk about the shepherds in the Christmas story.
