Read Together

For God so loved the world that He gave His only Son. John 3:16

Discuss Together

God had a wonderful plan for the world. Before we ever knew Him, before we ever heard of Him, even before we were born – He loved us and had a plan to show us His love and bring us into a relationship with Him. God planned for Jesus to come into the world to show us how much He loves us. That is what Christmas is all about.

Do Together

  • Display a kid-friendly, non-breakable nativity for the children to play with throughout the season as they think about God’s wonderful plan.
  • Make outdoor Christmas ornaments for the birds. Collect pinecones or tissue rolls, peanut butter, and birdseed. Spread the peanut butter (or soy butter for peanut allergies) on the pinecones or rolls. Roll in birdseed. Tie a string around the top. Hang on a tree.

Pray Together

Thank you, God for loving us. Thank you for making a plan for Jesus to come to show us how much he loves us.
