The Shepherd (Luke 2) | Craft 2


As part of this years update the shepherd is getting a new craft to go with the range of musical instruments. If you want something for the nativity scene then why not make these cute and incredible easy signposts.

The Shepherd (Luke 2) | Worksheet

This worksheet about the shepherd is more than just a game, the simple dice game comes at the end after a few discussion prompts and a refreshing of the bible verse. The sheet is designed to do in small groups, but if needed could be done simply in pairs.

For this sheet you will want to give the young people not only dice, but also some sort of counters as play pieces. The standard game has the children making sound effects each time they land on a ‘toppled over’ sheep, but if you have more time then you can add extra questions or activities for these squares.

The PDF can be downloaded by clicking on the image.

NOTE : This worksheet was updated in 2019

The Shepherd is today’s hero because he shows us the gift of Witness

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.

That looks like a… – the idea of this game is to identify a picture while only being able to see a small amount. Take a large envelope and cut a small hole in the side (a hole punch will do this neatly, don’t worry about having holes on both sides). slip a picture into the envelope and give it to the children. the children will probably try and more the picture about to see as much as possible. Have the last picture be one of an Angel.
