Making the Plaque:
- Cut out a picture of a baby for each child and help them glue it
onto a sheet of cardboard.
- Write or let the children copy, "Baby Jesus Asleep" at the top of
the cardboard sheets.
- Cut out rectangles of cloth and help the children glue their
"blanket" over the picture with Bostik glue.
"Mary wrapped her Son in cloths and placed Him in a manger, because
there was no room for them in the inn" (Luke 2:7).
Preschool to Grade 2.
No Room for Jesus!
Christmas time is coming soon and we always think about Jesus being born
in a stable because there was no room for Mary and Joseph in the inn.
Jesus came from Heaven to be born as a baby and grew up to become
our Saviour. Because of Him, we will go to Heaven when we die one
day and live there for ever and ever!
If you lived long ago when Jesus was born, it was cold and I'm sure you
would have wanted to give Him one of your blankets. We are going
to make a picture showing Baby Jesus sleeping nice and warm under a
blanket. I want each of you to glue a picture of a baby onto a
sheet of cardboard and then glue on a piece of material as a "blanket"
We will write, "Baby Jesus Asleep" at the top of the cardboard
Now you are finished, let's learn our memory verse which says:
"Mary wrapped Baby Jesus in cloths and placed Him in a manger,
there was no room for them in the inn." (Luke 2:7).
Let's say that again and then we will close our eyes and say, "Thank You"
to Jesus for making a special place in Heaven for us. And we will
go there one day!
