"The Nativity" by Julie Vivas
The biblical story of the Nativity is one about faith,
love--and a miracle. With illustrations that are
enchanting and unexpected, Julie Vivas reveals the
human side to Mary's story, beautifully imagining the
Angel Gabriel delivering the news to her, the exhausting
journey with Joseph to Bethlehem, and at last the
deliverance of the baby Jesus.
"We Three Kings" by Gennady Spirin
Over two thousand years ago, three great kings journeyed
across the desert, riding through the heat of day and dark
of night. Each from a different region, each beckoned by
the same gleaming star, each bearing treasures, each
wishing to welcome a newborn asleep in a manger's hay --
a baby named Jesus, who would change the world.
Morning Circle:
Review the letter "N" with the children.  Ask them if they remember a word beginning with
"N" that means "Christmas."  Remind them that the word was "Noel."  Sing, "The First
Noel" with the children.  Have the room decorated for a birthday party.  Ask the children
what they think of the decorations.  Isn't this supposed to be Christmas, after all? Ask the
children whose birthday they think it might be.  They'll probably get the answer right!  
Remind the children that the reason we celebrate Christmas is to honor Jesus' birthday.  
Sing the rhyme, "Happy Birthday Jesus:" (Tune: "Jesus Loves Me")
Story Time
Ask the children what kinds of things they like to do on their
birthdays.  Most will say, "get presents!"  

Read: We Three Kings , by Gennady Spirin.  Discuss why these
rich men would have travelled so far to bring gifts to this poor
little boy born in a barn.  Tie this in to how we give presents to
each other at Christmas.  Discuss what kinds of gifts we could
give to Jesus.  Explain that He doesn't want toys or things,
but that He loves gifts that come from our
hearts.  Ask the children for examples.  If
they have trouble getting started, suggest
are prayer, praise, helping others, loving our
neighbors, obeying our parents, being kind
to our siblings, singing Him songs, etc.
Birthday cake!  Since
this is Jesus' birthday,
have birthday cake
and birthday treats.  
If you're wondering
how many candles to
put on the cake, try
three (for the trinity.)
Music & Movement:

Pass out bells, tambourines, and triangles.  Play "We Three Kings
of Orient Are," and instruct the children to play their instruments
softly at an appropriate rhythm to the song.  See how softly they
can play.  Try giving different children different times to play their
"parts."  Experiment and enjoy the soft chiming sounds these
instruments make.
Pin the Tail on the Donkey
Use this birthday party classic to tie into both the Nativity and
Birthday Party themes.  Consider using a wall mural of the
Nativity (if it has a donkey pictured) for this activity.  The
focus should be to encourage the children to help each other
and work as a team.  Pair the children up and let each one help
the other with their blindfolds and leading each other to the
right spot on the wall.
Nativity Dramatic Play
If you have small nativity sets, let the children play with
these.  Otherwise, small toy animals, a barn made from a
shoe box, a little hay, and some plastic people will work as
Provide a variety of flashlights.  Prepare black cardstock that
has been cut to the shape of the flashlight ends.  Punch holes of
varying sizes into the cardstock to represent constellations.  
Tape the black cardstock onto the flashlights so that the
children can point the beams into the "sky" and see lovely stars
like the shepherds might have seen the night baby Jesus was
born.  Make sure you have a dark corner of the room for this
center.  For more fun, have a few glow-in-the-dark stars taped
around this area as well.
Bible Verse Bracelets:
Luke 2:11:  “...A Savior
has been born to you;...”
Bible Song:
"Away in a Manger." Click

of the song.
Read: "The Nativity" by Julie Vivas.
Remind the children that the letter "N"
begins "Noel" and "Nativity."  Review what the term
"nativity" means.  This charming picture book uses
the traditional Luke account of the birth of Jesus.  A
wonderful way to tell the authentic Christmas story!
Nativity Finger play

short storytime lesson from
our Sister site, "

Birthday Presents for Jesus
Birthday Craft Page 1
Birthday Craft Page 2
Provide a variety of small  printables for the children to color in.  You might have
a picture of a heart, a musical note or treble clef, praying hands, a picture of a
child doing a chore, a friend helping another friend, and a picture of a Bible.  See
if the children can name how each picture shows a gift we can give Jesus.  After
the children have colored their little "gifts," let them paste them onto colorful
construction paper.  Provide bows and ribbons, and show the children how to
paste these onto their "presents" to look like a gift-wrapped box.
Optional Activity:  Birthday Candles
This is a cut and pasted activity where the children
can cut out the candle and glue them onto the cake.  
For older children have them glue the right amount
for their age.
Optional Activity:  Handwriting Practice
This is a page the children can color, and pracitce
their handwriting skills, by writing "Happy Birthday
Jesus"  There are three candles on the cake
representing God the Father, God the Son, and God
the Holy Spirit.
Optional Activity:  Christmas Carolling
Take the children carolling at a nursing home or
retirement village, to emphasize loving others and
offering praise to God.
