ADVENT WEEK THREE

Advent GPS: Week 1

 

GAME:

NATIVITY ACTION GAME

Get each child to choose a character from the Christmas story and an action that goes with that character:

- For preschoolers you may want to give them the character and action

- For older children give them a character and let them come up with an action for that character

- For the teens get them to choose a character and an action

Some suggested people:

- Mary

- Joseph

- Baby Jesus

- Angel

- Shepherd

- King

- Farm animals

Start by going around the circle and getting the kids to share what character they are and what their action is. Now choose someone to begin and they will say their characters name and do the action the say the character of another person and do their action. Then the next person does their character and action and someone elses and so on. Once you've done this a few times then you can do the next level where you don't say the names and just do the actions!!! Lots of fun...and is quiet...for a small time!!!

PRAYER: 

LOVE HEART PRAYERS

Cut out some love heart shapes and get the kids to write their prayers on the hearts, as many as they like. Encourage them to:

- Prayer for people they love

- People they don't know, 

- Pray for things they are grateful for

- Anything they like

You can choose what you do with the prayers, either put them up on a wall, hang them on the church Christmas tree or maybe make a heart chain. Be creative.
