Watch the story of Jesus’ birth here as told by Linus. If you have time, watch the entire Charlie Brown Christmas special filmed in 1965.
Read: Luke 2: 8-15 (the scripture Linus read)
Ask: Can you tell the story of Jesus’ birth? What is your favorite part? What do you think it would have been like to be at the manger that night? What about in the field with the shepherds?
Pray: Thank you God for your story. Thank you that you sent Jesus down to earth to save people from their sins.
Other things to do:
*Put on a play acting out the story of Jesus’ birth.
*Make a video telling the story and send it to grandparents or other relatives.
*Draw a picture that shows all the parts of the story that Charlie Brown told.
