Preschoolers: Here’s How to Throw a Birthday Bash for Jesus!

Print Friendly

This Christmas, put Jesus center stage by throwing him a birthday bash with your preschoolers! 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. Preschoolers 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 bash
