Pick a new color and have children find and circle all of the angels. Pick a different color and have children find and circle the most special thing, Baby Jesus, on their paper.
- SAY: “Come sit at the table with me. On your paper, there is a picture of something very special. It’s the most special thing, and we need to find it. Pick a crayon and look on your paper. The first thing we’re going to look for is a sheep. When you find a sheep, circle it. (Pause.) Keep looking and circle all the sheep. (Pause.) Great! Now put that crayon down and pick another color. This time, I want you to look for the shepherds. When you find a shepherd, circle him. (Pause.) Keep looking and circle all the shepherds. (Pause.) Put that crayon down and pick another color. This time, I want you to look for the angels. When you find an angel, circle it. (Pause.) Keep looking and circle all of the angels. (Pause.) Great! Now put that crayon down and pick another color. This time, I want you to look for the most special thing on your paper. (Pause.) Did you find it? The most special thing on your paper is Jesus! Circle Baby Jesus when you find Him. (Pause.) Super job! Today, we heard part of the true story of Christmas when the angel told the shepherds that Jesus, God’s Son was born and they needed to find Him. Then the whole sky filled with angels praising God and saying, ‘Glory to God in the highest!’ The shepherds ran to find Jesus. Once they saw Him, they knew they needed to go tell EVERYONE that Jesus, God’s Son, was born! Everyone who heard the good news that Jesus had been born was amazed. They knew Jesus is special because Jesus is God’s Son. Why is Jesus special? [Bottom Line] Jesus is God’s Son!”
- DRIVE TIME
- While on the go, see how many people you can tell, "Merry Christmas! Jesus is God's Son!" just like the shepherds did when they told everyone that Jesus had been born.
