Christmas Creatures | Make 3

 

We have cotton wool sheep but what of the other 2 featured animals – here they are. Also if you’ve been browsing through the last couple of crafts and hoping for something that needs nothing more than a printer and a glue-stick this is for you, I’ve even included another sheep!

The JWL nativity scene, cone angel, and cotton ball sheep all have a similar scale (if not the same) so they can all go together!

Christmas Creatures | Make 2

 

Chocolate advent calendars are tasty, lift the flap pictures are fun, but this advent calendar is all focused on one thing, the night the angels come sing to the sheep.

Here I use cotton wool balls, but print it smaller and you could use buttons, circles of card, or halves of styrofoam balls. Incorporate a daily prayer, or just use as a counting activity while making the craft with a younger group.

Christmas Creatures | Play

 

Animal games abound and if you have a favourite with your group be sure to use it. Equally many groups have Christmas traditions, which include games they ‘always’ play, if so don’t worry about the season overtaking the message, Christmas is a time of celebration and not everything always needs to link. However, if you don’t have either of the above, here are a few suggestions.

Camel races – Camels can travel a long distance but be prepared for them to collapse in this race. Get your youngsters into teams of tree, 2 people will act as legs and the smallest will be the hump! You could even add a blanket over the hump then have the camels collect and carry gold, frankincense and myrrh packages from around the room!

Woollen treasures – use a mixture of cotton wool and packaging material to fill a large deep container with ‘sheep’s wool’. Take a small multi-part toy, a small puzzle, or even building bricks and hide inside the ‘wool’. Tell the youngsters that the sheep were given gifts to hold like the camels but lost them when they had their ‘wool cut’. This can be a single group activity or a race with 2 or more groups

Christmas Creatures worksheet
This Christmas creatures worksheet is mostly fun, with a few things to prompt the kids back to the story. Before joining dots, connecting lines, and even colouring come some true false statements that also have a ‘don’t know’ option… because so much of Christmas is tradition over text. It can be done as individual work, in small groups or used as a time filler activity.

To complete the worksheet you will need colouring pens or pencils and something to write with.

Essential Teachers notes:
Often Christmas can be fraught with special events, multiple retellings of ‘the Christmas story’, and sometimes it feel like the tinsel and the cute costumes obscure the biblical account. If so, this is the story for you, one that pulls the kids into the history of the event and dose away with the over-reading of the text. Adding in a few animals sounds in just for fun!

Main Passage : Luke 1+2, Matthew 1+2
