Christmas Activities 2010

Here are some activities we did over Christmas.  I know it's a little late to be posting, but you could always try them next year. 

God's Gift
This activity came from the preschool book " More Toddlerific Fun Faith-Builders "  I printed off pictures from the book and placed them in different gift boxes.  Little Sweets opened the boxes and pulled out the pictures.  Each picture told a part of the story of Christ's birth and emphasized that God's gift to us was Jesus.

Magnetic Christmas Story
This was easy to make.  Print out coloring pictures that go along with the story of Christ's birth.  Color and laminate the pictures. Put magnets on the back of the pictures and use the magnets to tell the story of Christ's birth.  I used the back of a cookie sheet as the magnet board.   

Birthday Cupcakes for Jesus

We usually make a birthday cake for Jesus for Christmas.  This year we made cupcakes.  We made 12 cupcakes to remind us that we should remember Jesus all 12 months of the year.  Little Sweets likes to help cook so this was a fun activity for her. 


  1. What fun ideas!! I like the magnetic one!! My kids wanted to make a birthday cake for Jesus, but we just had too many other sweets, but I really like the idea of putting the cupcakes in the shape of a cross!

  2. Love that you made a birthday cake for Jesus. My sister started early with her boys and at 10 and 12, they still look forward to it! Kerri
