  • Home Connection
    • NEED: Baby doll, baby blanket, streamers, toilet paper, and a toy banana
    • DO: 
      • Before the Activity: Gather the child with supplies either on the floor or at a table.
      • During the Activity: Lead the child to investigate swaddling the baby with the different items available. Help them determine what is the best option for wrapping Baby Jesus. Continue as long as there is interest.
      • After the Activity: Introduce the Bible story.
    • Say: 
      • Before the Activity: “Friend, come sit with me. I want to do an experiment with you. An experiment is where you try different things to see what works best. Let’s see what will work best to wrap these babies and keep them warm.”
      • During the Activity: “Let’s try wrapping our baby with these streamers. (Demonstrate.) See if you can get the baby all covered and warm with them. Hmmm, I wonder if that’s the best. Now, let’s try wrapping our baby with this banana. (Demonstrate.) Did that work? (Pause.) No, I think the banana is not the best to cover our baby and keep him warm. What about toilet paper? Let’s try that. (Demonstrate.) Wow, we did cover the baby with toilet paper. Do you think that’s the best? (Pause.) Let’s keep experimenting. Let’s use this blanket. (Demonstrate.) Oh look, the baby is all wrapped up and warm. Which one do you think did the best job of wrapping our baby? (Pause.) Yes, the blanket did the best job. Great job of experimenting. We learned that the blanket is best for wrapping a baby. Do you want to try it again?”
      • After the Activity: “In today’s story, we’ll hear about a very special baby. I wonder if they wrapped Him in a blanket. Let’s find out."
  • Cuddle Time
    • Cuddle with your child and pray: "God, [child's name] and I are getting so excited about Christmas! Everywhere we look we see all kinds of fun decorations. Please help us remember that all of these decorations are to celebrate that Jesus was born! And Jesus is the MOST wonderful because Jesus is Your Son!"
