Happy Birthday, Jesus!

baby3This Christmas, put Jesus center stage by throwing him a birthday bash! Follow these simple steps, and it'll come together in a flash!

Step One: Decorate the room and hallway with streamers, Mylar balloons, and "Happy Birthday, Jesus" signs. Show kids today is a special day.

Step Two: As children enter, play kids' praise music to welcome them. Toddlers understand a birthday, and they'll be excited to take part.

Step Three: Play a few simple party games like Pass the Baby-have children hug a baby doll and then pass it on.

Step Four: Gather kids around your snack table and turn off the lights. Sing "Happy Birthday" while you enter with a small cake. (Alert: Consider any food allergies.)

Step Five: If funds allow, send each child home with a party favor. Tell children Jesus is so happy they attended his birthday party!
