You’ve Been Socked!

Items Needed: Stocking, goodies, card, writing utensil

Celebrate Christmas through this fun way of giving to others. Fill a Christmas stocking with goodies—small candies or treats, small toys, pencils, etc. Write a simple note saying, “You’ve been socked! Enjoy this treat from us!” Hang it on the door of a neighbor or friend, ring the doorbell, and run and hide.

God is the great gift-giver! John 3:16 says He loved us, so He gave us His Son. Jesus is the best gift!

Christmas Hide and Seek

Items Needed: Candy canes, hot chocolate, Bible

Buy a few boxes of candy canes. When the children aren’t looking, go outside (or inside, depending on the weather) and hide the candy canes in the trees, on bushes, all over the yard. Invite the children (neighbors too) to find them. Enjoy hot chocolate and read the Christmas story (Luke 2:1–20) about the greatest gift ever given.

What Do You Say?

Items Needed: Supplies for making thank you notes, snack, hot chocolate

You’ve probably said that many, many times in the last week, hoping to prompt your children to say thank you for the gifts they received.

Make a list of gifts received and spend some time making and mailing thank you notes. Lay out paper, cards, pens, markers, paper, etc. and sit down at the kitchen table and write them together. Enjoy a snack and hot chocolate when finished. Don’t forget to say thank you to God for His great gift, Jesus!
