|The christmas story has so many various crafts associated with it, and so this craft offering is more specific to just this one part of the story. After a good browse round the internet I found almost no craft project about pregnancy itself, so this craft tries to highlight the idea of pregnancy as a precious time.|
The worksheet for Elizabeth and Mary is deliberately designed to be paired with the worksheet for Joseph, so one focuses of fatherhood and the other on motherhood. For that reason I’ve shown the image from the sister worksheet (in grey), if you want that worksheet you need this link
This worksheet about Elizabeth and Mary touches on the ideas of waiting, advent, quiet, messages, and Angels. The sheet is suitable to do in small groups, but if needed could be done alone.
The sheet consists of three areas, an exploration of the emotions we connect with waiting, and the emotions Mary may have connected after the words the angel had said to here. A section on communication between Elizabeth and her husband, finding and practising ways of communication that don’t involve speech. Lastly there is a puzzle that reminds us of the amazing way Mary heard the news.

Elizabeth and Mary are today’s heroes because they show us the gift of Motherhood
Essential Teachers notes:
The of Christmas is often done in many parts, the birth of John the Baptist, the annunciation, the journey to Bethlehem, the shepherds account, and later the wise men and Anna and Simeon. All these parts are hugely important but this story wraps up the first two into one, giving those teachers who have a more hectic Christmas schedule a little breathing room. If you wish to split the story then this story probably works better for Elizabeth than Mary.
Main Passage : Luke 1
The heroes in this story are Elizabeth and Mary. This lesson is written for those of us who don’t necessarily have 4 or 5 weeks of Christmas story teaching time, often because other Christmas events and special services take our time.
Exploring the tree – This game is a simple hunt but can be incorporated into the seasonal decorations of the room. Take small pieces of pink ribbon, pink Christmas decorations, or use this printout of the two individual characters printed on card and hung as decorations. The children have to discover the hidden objects according to a clue you give them – make this age appropriate for your group. At the end talk about how the bright lights of Christmas hold a much more everyday story of two women being mother.
