Theme: Celebrating Jesus’ birth

Verses to Devour: Matthew 2:10-11

Supplies: five gingersnap cookies, a resealable plastic sandwich bag, a teaspoon, corn syrup, creamy peanut butter, wax paper, star-shaped cookie cutters, cinnamon, sugar, and napkins.

What to Do: Place five gingersnaps in a resealable plastic bag, and seal the bag. Crush the cookies into fine crumbs. Open the bag to add two teaspoons of corn syrup and one teaspoon of creamy peanut butter. Close the bag, and knead the ingredients until a dough forms. Remove the dough from the bag, and flatten it on a square of wax paper. If the dough is sticky, add another crushed gingersnap. If the dough is too dry, add another teaspoon of corn syrup. Cut out star shapes, and then sprinkle the dough cookies with cinnamon and sugar. What a spicy treat-and oh, so sweet!

Kids love our Sunday School resources!

What to Say: After everyone has cut out and spiced up several stars, read aloud Matthew 2:10-11. Then ask: How did the wise men celebrate Jesus’ birth? How did their gifts show love? How can we celebrate Jesus’ birth today?

Close by singing the following song to the tune of “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star.”

Twinkle, twinkle, little star. What a super sign you are.

Up above the world so high, Announcing Jesus in the sky.

Twinkle, twinkle, little star. You helped the wise men travel far.

Share.
