Family Ideas for the Christmas Season and Morning!
There are some really fun and meaningful things you can do as a family during the season of Christmas, Christmas Eve, or Christmas morning. These are some of the best I’ve come across so far! I love 1, 2, & 3 in the article for Christmas morning! Wrap each of your family members names in individual boxes, hand them out randomly, take turns opening the boxes one at a time, and then talk about and celebrate the life of each person in the family as you open. Then you (or whoever is leading) take out a large (the largest) wrapped box and open it with the name of Jesus inside. Talk about His life and why He is the greatest gift! Last, you can read the Christmas story in Luke 2 together! Want to do some Christmas themed coloring after? Go to: http://www.lifeway.com/kidsministry/2014/12/03/christmas-coloring-pages-2/ for some free images from the Christmas story.
Another great suggestion was to put pictures of the Christmas story around your living room and then have your family take them down and put them in order. Tell the Christmas story using it after!
I’ve pretty much shared most the article ideas now but you can read all the details and ideas in full at the link bellow!
