Anticipating Christmas!

You can begin celebrating Christmas now by starting to prepare The Nativity Story paper model. The goal is to create and set out a new section each week of December, so you can place Baby Jesus in the manger on Christmas morning.

Alternately, you can create the pieces in advance, and then starting on December 1st, set out one or two pieces a day, with the aim of adding Baby Jesus on Christmas Day, and the wise men with their gifts the following days.

To set out The Nativity Story paper model as the story unfolds:

Sunday, December 4th: Mary, Joseph, and the donkey, as they prepare for their trip to Bethlehem.

Sunday, December 11th: In Bethlehem, set up the stable, manger, cow, cats, chickens, and mouse, ready to receive their unexpected guests.

Sunday, December 18th: Outside of Bethlehem, place the shepherds, sheep, and campfire.

Sunday, December 25th: Bring all the characters to the stable, adding Baby Jesus to the manger and the angel announcing His birth.

Sunday, January 1st: The wise men arrive with their camels, bearing gifts for Baby Jesus.

The Nativity Story paper model can be found here, where it is offered by the model creator, Didier Martin, to download, print, and assemble.

Download all three PDFs that include the model parts. Also, download the instructions, which teach how to cut, fold, and glue together your Nativity scene.

Note: The most difficult piece to assemble is the stable. If you prefer, you could use a small box, set on its side, and then glue the leaves to the top and the textured wall pieces or colored paper on the inside and outside of the box.

Level 1 Lesson Plan: Miracles of Supply

Note to parent or teacher: Here is a 30- to 40-minute lesson plan that highlights the learning objective: “Learn to take one’s specific needs and the needs of others to the Lord in prayer, claiming God’s promises and expecting God to act.” (Christian Life and Faith: Spiritual Insight and Awareness: Miracles-1d)

 

Study the following Bible stories about God’s miraculous supply:

Fill in the crossword puzzle, “The Generous Widow.” (Find the answer key here.)

Talk about the ways God has supplied needs in your life and in the children’s lives. Explore how God often supplies through practical means, such as through purchasing needed items, giving to others in need, or making things that fulfill the need; then discuss how God also supplies at times through miraculous means like in these stories.

Choose a promise to memorize from “Crazily Cool Cards Set: All My Needs.” Print and color the card of your choice.

Pray for the supply of a need for your personal family or for a need you know of for someone outside of your personal family. Read or quote a verse from the “Crazily Cool Cards Set: All My Needs” to go with the prayer.

Assemble and display one or more of the 3D pictures of the above stories of “Miracles in the Bible.”

If you have other suggestions of supplemental material, or additional activities in teaching this topic, please share your ideas and tips by commenting below. We look forward to hearing from you.

“Gift of Joy” Supplement (Character Building: Personal Responsibility: Problem Solving-1a)

After you and your children have read “Gift of Joy,” here’s an activity to help reinforce what they’ve learned.

Along with the children, take turns acting out a scene of something that you probably would be unhappy about. You and your children can then suggest things that could be done in order to experience the joy Jesus gives, even in a situation that might not seem so good at first.
