Reviewing the Christmas Story: Pass the Parcel

2 Dec

Day 2: 25 Days of Christmas Ideas.


Pass the Parcel

Scripture: Luke 2: 1-20; Matthew 2: 1-12

Supplies: wrapping paper, tape, angel, strip of cloth, straw piece, cotton balls (or small plastic sheep), gold coin

Wrap the strips of cloth using the wrapping paper. Place the straw on the gift and wrap another layer around it. Continue until all items are in the package. Pass around the parcel with music playing. When the music stops the person holding the parcel unwraps the layer. Tell the part of the Christmas story that matches the item.

Items to use:

*strip of cloth- Jesus was wrapped in this

*straw- Jesus born and layed in a manger

*small candy cane- shepherd staff

*cotton balls- sheep in the field, shepherds

*angel- appears to the shepherds

*gold coin, cotton ball soaked in perfume- wise men brought gold, frankincense and myrrh
