The Faith of a Child: Christmas Activity Ideas

There are so many ways to celebrate at Christmas time.  The 3rd and 4th grade Sunday School Class came up with several ways to help us remember what Christmas is really about: the birth of Christ and sharing Jesus’ love with others.

  • Read the Story of Christmas from the Bible, Luke 2:1-7. 
  • You can listen to Linus from A Charlie Brown Christmas.  Or read some of the lines below:

Charlie Brown: Isn’t there anyone, who knows what Christmas is all about?!

Linus: Sure Charlie Brown, I can tell you what Christmas is all about. Lights please?

And there were in the same country shepherds, abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them! And they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, “Fear not! For, behold, I bring you tidings of great joy, which shall be to all my people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ, the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you: Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.” And suddenly, there was with the angel a multitude of the Heavenly Host praising God, and saying, “Glory to God in the Highest, and on Earth peace, and good will toward men.

That’s what Christmas is all about, Charlie Brown

*Notice that when Linus speaks of A Savior he drops his ever-present blanket. It’s the only time that Linus felt so secure that he did not feel a need for his blanket.

  • Help with Christmas Cards.
  • Draw a special picture and write a special greeting about the true meaning of Christmas.
  • Sing Christmas songs like O Little Town of Bethlehem, Joy to the World, Hark! The Herald Angels Sing, and Silent Night.
  • Make Christmas cookies that are shaped like symbols of Christmas, and share these with your friends and neighbors.
