A Candy Cane Christmas
You might have heard the Legend of the Candy Cane. But I bet you've never heard it like this! Lori Frankel, a subscriber to The Sunday School Teacher's Network, has sent in a wonderful retelling of the legend in play format! Click the title to get the script. 

A Christmas Play
Faith Scott, a dedicated Sunday School teacher, and contributor to the Sunday School Teacher's Network, wrote this Christmas play. She initially used it with a small group of kids. However, you can adapt it to a larger group of children by adding more angels and/or interjecting Christmas Carols to be sung by your children's choir. 

A New Home for Christmas The story takes place Christmas Eve at a home for orphaned and abandoned children... Jared and Michael find this Christmas extremely difficult feeling no peace, no hope, and no love. UNTIL...Discover their hope!

All I Want For Christmas is to Know Jesus
Bill Game, the lead character, and his family, are enamored with the things of this world (the path that leads to destruction). With the help of a music director, Miss O'Malley, and a slightly eccentric Pastor Ernie, Bill learns that God needs to come first in his life.

Mrs. Magi  The Magi's three wives are "doing" lunch after sending their husbands off on an expedition to Jerusalem.


No Room In The Inn - A comical skit which takes place at the Reservation Desk of the Bethlehem Inn & Spa.

Shepherds On The Hillside
Faith Scott gives us a glimpse as to what the shepherds might have been saying and doing the night the angel appeared to them.

Someone is Coming to Our House 
It's the Christmas story as seen through the eyes of the animals of the stable where Joseph & Mary came to stay. Gabby is the pink flamingo who is busy "preparing" for Christmas. But her friend Minnie Moo (the cow) tells Gabby about a different way to prepare for a very special Someone. Gabby does help in the skit by singing a stanza from various Christmas Carols.

The Best Party Ever takes place in a fairy school where no one knows anything about Jesus' birth. Holly, the Christmas Fairy, shares the story--not just the glitter and mince pies--but the true meaning of Christmas with friends. 

The Christmas Caravan the three camels that carried the Magi to Bethlehem for the first Noel, have come together to celebrate the 25th anniversary of that event. This heartwarmingly humorous drama retells the Christmas story from the perspective of the camels.



Bethlehem Drive a fun and effective way to witness to your community. Stations are set up to tell important parts of the Christmas story. Visitors drive past each station, finally arriving at the manger scene. Little to no memorization required. For older youth and adults.

Bethlehem Walk A group of about 20 visitors at a time follow a shepherd on a 15 minute walk to view 7 skits or vignettes while looking for baby Jesus. A unique way to witness to your community during the Christmas season

Christmas, the Best Gift Ever!  A Sunday school teacher helps her students to realize the real meaning behind exchanging gifts at Christmas.

Christmas, Jesus, & Santa
Santa Claus in a play about the birth of our savior?! 
Read it to learn why? 

Ewe Said It! a sweet skit which tells the story of some  Spring Lambs who anxiously await Ewe's arrival to hear the story of the Good Shepherd several generations after the first Christmas.

Grandpa Remembers
Mary Goemaat, Children's Director at Faith Church in Michigan wrote in to say, "A few years ago our church created an original Christmas production, a brainstorm of the associate pastor and myself that we pulled together out of necessity. We include many different programs and ages of kids and put it all together in "Grandpa Remembers". 

It's Christmas Day Children perform original music, while other children pantomime the Nativity scene.

The Christmas I Remember Join three middle aged daughters who happen across an old chest in their parent's attic, evoking memories of their childhood and Christmases past. 

The Christmas Tree Narrative Easy setup to adapt to your Children's Ministry. It does not necessarily need a rehearsal. 

The Nativity A 15 minute short play. The Christmas story told through Matthew and Luke as they expound upon the Nativity in their actual Biblical words while their narration unfolds with the other actors performance. Luke, Matthew, Storyteller, Narrator, and Gabriel have larger parts and would typically be given to teens and/or adults, whereas the other parts may be children, teens, or adults.

The Perfect Gift
This skit was designed to require minimal prep and rehearsal! Uses eleven or more people, and can include audience if not enough kids. It teaches a lesson about the busy-ness of the gifting season. The perfect gift is, of course, the Savior, and the nativity is the basis of the skit.

The Real Story
Faith Scott has written another great skit for Christmastime, and has incorporated the poem, One Solitary Life.

The Reason For The Season Some common Christmas symbols come to life and find out the real reason for celebrating Christmas, learn important lessons about friendship and unity, and discover their own hidden gifts and responsibilities. A short skit for 13 characters.

Three Kings The first Christmas story is humorously told from the Magi's point of view. It is for a smaller group of children.

What is Christmas? Written for a small Sunday School class of 5-6 students. Anyone can use this skit "as is" or build one around the idea.

What's Christmas All About?  Christmas is all about money, food, singing, and presents...or is it? The puppet characters voice their opinions on the meaning of Christmas.

X-Factor It's easy, and maybe even common, to miss the "X-Factor" in Christmas today, but this skit reminds us what's important during the hustle and bustle of the "holidays".
