At the first of December, involve children in decorating the
classroom. Kids can make and hang several glitter stars and one
large star from the ceiling. Children can paint cardboard figures
of Mary and Joseph. A decorated box can serve as the manger with a
baby doll as Jesus. You’ll also need to designate or draw three
doors around the room. Place the nativity scene by the third
door.

Kids can also help make their costumes. They’ll each need a
jingle-bells-on-yarn necklace and an angel headband. Make headbands
out of silver garland stapled onto a paper strip. You can wear a
bathrobe as a costume.

Teach children the following songs and program before you invite
parents to watch.

Teacher: We’re going on a special Christmas journey.

(Children enter the room and sing to the tune of “Row, Row, Row
Your Boat”:)

A long, long time ago
An angel came to say,
“Mary, Mary, Mary, Mary,
You will have a babe.”
Teacher: (knocks on the first door) Any room here?
Children: No room here.

(Children walk to the second door and sing to the tune of “Mary
Had a Little Lamb”:)
Mary went to Bethlehem, Bethlehem, Bethlehem,
Mary went to Bethlehem,
Riding on a donkey.
Joseph went to Bethlehem, Bethlehem, Bethlehem,
Joesph went to Bethlehem,
With his wife Mary.
Teacher: (knocks on the second door) Any room here?
Children: No room here.

(Children walk to the last door and sing to the tune of “London
Bridge”:)
Can we come inside your inn?
Come inside, come inside?
Can we come inside your inn
To rest our tired feet?

(Teacher opens the last door)

Children: There’s room here. Come on in!
(Children ring jingle-bell necklaces and sing to the tune of “Are
You Sleeping?”:)
Bells are ringing, children singing,
Jesus is born. Jesus is born.
Happy Birthday, Jesus. Happy birthday, Jesus.
We love you. We love you.

Conclude with everyone singing “We Wish You a Merry Christmas.”
Then serve punch and a birthday cake for Jesus.
