I’ll never forget when I was a younger, less experienced father taking my oldest sons to a church Christmas musical for the first time. I thought they would LOVE it. I was SO wrong. After a few minutes, they weren’t enjoying listening to the sounds of Christmas as our choir worshiped the Savior. Then, there was the narration. I needed something to keep them occupied and quick!
I always want my kids to be interested in church and do things that are helping them focus on the true meaning of why we are there. But, the truth is, four and five-year old little boys don’t care so much about the “Hanging of the Green” service.
Here are some great Christmas Coloring Pages that will get your kids to think about the true meaning of Christmas. You can place them outside your sanctuary for kids to color during special services or maybe you can use them during a December parent’s night out.
- Prophets Told About Jesus
- An Angel Visited Mary
- Joseph’s Dream
- Jesus Was Born
- Simeon and Anna
- Wise Men Visited Jesus
