A Party for Baby Jesus

Here’s an interactive nativity story for a toddler group Christmas party or celebration or for families to use at home. Its message is simply that Christmas is the birthday of Jesus, the baby who slept in a manger.

Ask the adults to bring their children (or a soft toy) dressed as a nativity character. It doesn’t matter how many Marys, Josephs and shepherds come along on the day. Grown-ups can dress up, too! You might like to invite your church leader and ask them to make the brief point that since Christmas is a birthday party for Jesus, it would be a shame to leave Jesus out of the celebrations.
