Today, I wanted to cover the Christmas story in a fresh new way, so to begin, we read the Christmas Story from the Jesus Storybook Bible. I’m not crazy about this Bible — I think the authors take a lot of unneeded liberties, but the pictures are very vibrant and this story was accurate, so we went with it.
Afterwards we played Christmas Jeopardy, a favorite among our kids!
In case you can’t see it, the categories are: Songs, Traditions, Events, Places, and Characters.
I made the “Characters” category pretty easy and only allowed 4-5 year olds to pick from that category (we have ages 4-9 in our Children’s Church program). If you’d like all the questions, send me an email or leave me a comment and I would be happy to send them your way!
After the Jeopardy game was complete, I quickly told the kids the legend of the Candy Cane based on this book:
Then we played a little Minute to Win It type of game using Candy Canes, but I’ll have to post more on that later!!
