December 8: Family Skit

*For today's gift, you'll need to wrap supplies for a production of the Christmas story. I usually wrap hand towels, hair bands and bath robes. These items transform regular kids into Bible-time characters!

  • Let your children open the "costumes."

  • Assign parts to conduct your very own rendition of Christ's birth. You'll need characters (or stand-ins) for Joseph, Mary, Baby Jesus, shepherds and at least one angel.

  • Narrate the story by reading the Scriptures while the children act it out. The story is found in Luke 2:1-20.
This is excellent video footage if you're able to film....we've documented this skit year after year and it's fun to see how our kids have grown in their own understanding of the Christmas story.

  • At the conclusion of your skit, pray with your family. Thank God for this unpredictable and miraculous story about the birth of the Messiah.
