Christmas!? Are you kidding me, you wonder, I just put our Fall Festival to bed. Who’s had time to think about Christmas?

Well, if you’re not the uber-children’s minister who chose what you’re doing for Christmas at least six months ago, join the club! You’ve got a lot on your plate! And that’s why we created easy (almost instant) resources for Christmas that’ll make your job easier — and still wow your church and community! And, by the way, I’ve listed them in order of Easy, Easier, and Easiest!

Station-Based Christmas Event

Miracle of JesusImagine a place where families can experience what Joseph and Mary did on that miraculous night long ago! With the easy-to-prepare instructions in this kit, you’ll create such a place where
families see, touch, smell, and taste what life was like when Jesus was born.

Then they all join in the Nativity Drama at the end. Learn more about this program. Learn more about this program.

The Instant Christmas Play

Twas the Light Before ChristmasIf you (like us) are tired of the multiple rehearsals, complex costumes and staging, and the Grinch stealing every moment you have just to get ready for Christmas, check out these two surprisingly easy kits.
It’s multigenerational! It’s easy! And it’s low-cost! In one night, you go from first rehearsal through cast party! In one night! You get the four scenes, original music, and speaking parts for two actors. Families and people of all ages rehearse their scene, create simple costumes, and learn a new song after they arrive. Then everyone gathers to put on the play. And they wrap up with a cast party! Kids and their families will LOVE being part of ’Twas the Light Before Christmas! In one fun-filled night, they’ll create props, rehearse, and present a full-fledged Christmas production with a captivating script and original music. Learn more about this program.
