This 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
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.)

his birthday party!
