You can search our site by the particular resource that you
need for your class.  Each category has everything we have
to offer for that particular resource.
Bible Theme: Nativity
What better month to learn about the birth of our Lord
Jesus Christ.  These resources will help you teach your
children about what Christmas is really about, the
birthday celebration of our savior.
Preschool Theme: Snow
This page is  full of Snow printables!  There are
snowflake coloring pages, bible verse bracelets,
printable word wall cards, handwriting worksheets and
more!  We have everything you need for a winterly
Morning Circle:
Review last lesson's "letter of the week" by saying "Merry Christmas!"  Say, "What does
'Merry' begin with?"  Make the "mmm" sound.  Encourage the children when they guess the
correct letter.  Introduce today's letter by explaining that another word that means  
"Christmas" is "Noel."  "Noel" begins with the letter "n."   Have three objects ready in the
letter bag. For example, you might have a necklace, a nut, and a nose (the funny plastic ones
with attached glasses are cute.)  Give the children clues about each item to see if they can
guess what it is before taking it out of the bag.
Thematic Snack:
Let the children make "dirty" snowballs.  Make sure children have clean hands,
then set a sheet of waxed paper in front of each child at the snack table.  Drop a
large spoonful each of marshmallow cream, raisins, and crisped rice onto the
paper.  "Powder" each child's hands with confectioner's sugar, to help keep
sticking to a minimum, then demonstrate making a "snowball" out of the
marshmallow cream.  Let children roll their snowball into the "dirt," collecting
raisins and puffed rice along the way.  Then tell the children that in this instance,
it's o.k. to eat dirty snow!
Music & Movement:

Have an indoor snowball fight!  Pour out
several bags of large white cotton balls on
the floor.  Let children lift up and drop
the "snow," throw it, toss it at each other,
and even try to make snow angels.  Play
"Let It Snow" in the background to help
set the mood.
Present Wrapping Center
Use lots of shapes and sizes of old boxes.  Provide old
wrapping paper, scissors, tape, ribbons, and bows.  Let the
children practice wrapping the boxes any way they like.
Shaving Cream Table
Have children put on paint shirts, then dispense a large
amount of white shaving foam onto a long table.  Let the
children make swirls and piles of "snow."  This is a great
sensory activity, and it really puts a shine on the tables!
Shape Snowflakes
Have a selection of shapes cut from cardstock in the center of a
table.  You might have triangles, diamonds, hearts, circles, and
ovals.  Provide crayons (with the paper removed) and scraps of
lace (from doilies, old dresses, tablecloths, etc.)  Show the
children how to lay the lace over the cardstock shapes and rub a
pattern onto them.  Use a hole punch to make a hanging hole in
the top if desired, and hang them around the room.
Read: "Room for a Little One" by Martin Waddel
Explain that just like "N" is for "Noel,""N" is also for
"Nativity."  Discussbriefly what the term "nativity" means
After the story, ask "what are some of the reasons Jesus was
born?"  (Some of the reasons include bringing love
and goodwill.)  Ask, "how did the animals in the story show
the love of Jesus?"  (They found acceptance and peace in the
place where Jesus was.)

who are ready to practice tracing the letters of the

"Room for a Little One" by Martin Waddell
On Christmas Eve
all are welcome
at the stable.
On Christmas Eve
all are welcome
because there's always
room for a little one.
"Dream Snow" by Eric Carle
It's December 24th, and the old farmer settles down for a
winter's nap, wondering how Christmas can come when
there is no snow! It is in his dream that he imagines a
snowstorm coming and covering him and his animals—
named One, Two, Three, Four and Five—in a snowy
Read: "Dream Snow," by Eric Carle.  You might
like to play "I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas" softly
in the background while reading the story.  Ask the
children what they look forward to most at Christmas.  
Most will probably say "presents," but others might say
putting up the tree, candy, or snow.  Introduce today's
circle story by saying that lots of folks hope for a snowy
Christmas day.
Bible Song:
"Love, Love," from
"Songs of Praise:
15 Classic Songs for Kids"
by Cedarmont Kids
(Traditional lyrics below)
Bible Verse Bracelets:
1 John 4:10:  
"...He loved us and sent
His son."
Swirly, Snowy, Starry Night Pictures
In front of each child place a small jar or bowl filled with about a 50/50 ratio of
sugar and lukewarm water.  Let the children stir the water to observe the sugar
dissolving.  This may prompt a discussion about "is it there if you can't see it?"  -
which can be an excellent time to discuss Jesus!  Provide colored chalk and a sheet
of heavy dark blue or black construction paper for each child.  Let the children
dip the chalk into the bowls or jars of sugar water (stirring it a little each time)
and then apply the wet chalk to the paper in swirls and whirls.  Then let the
children paste small cotton balls or wisps and foil stars onto their creations.  The
sugar crystals will sparkle once the piece it dry.  Van Gogh, look out!
Visit a Live Nativity
If there is a live Nativity scene in your town, take the
children to visit it!

game with the children.  If your class has olders, let
them make their own set to take home and invite
them to color the matching snowflakes the same.
