  4. Allow the children to colour in the inside picture and glue on coloured shapes to decorate the branches.
  5. Fold the card on the center dotted line and glue the inside to the front leaving the branches free.

Memory Verse:

"For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given" (Isaiah 9:6).

Age Group:

Preschool to Grade 2.

 

Introduction:

Today we are going to make Christmas cards.  They are going to be very special because they have a "Peep-in-Me!" Christmas tree.  If you look behind the tree, you will see a picture of Jesus in the manger.  I want you to colour the inside picture and glue coloured circles, squares and triangles to decorate the tree branches.

Baby Jesus:

Jesus was born in a stable and His mother, Mary placed Him in a manger.  Our memory verse says:

"For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given" (Isaiah 9:6).

Jesus was that special Child and He is also the Son of God who died on the cross.  Jesus is God's Son and because God loves us so much, we can go to Heaven and live with Him for ever and ever.

God bless!
