10 Days of Nativity: Day 5

Day 5: Jesus is Born!

Today we read the birth of Jesus! What could be more exciting? Our Baby Jesus is already wrapped and pretty set in the manger, but it'd be fun to wrap up your figure and set him into the manger if your set is a little more flexible. This could also be a fun day to reinforce that we celebrate the birth of Jesus at Christmas, sort of like your kiddos celebrate their birth on their birthdays.

Introduce: Baby Jesus, Manger/Barn
Note: If you have barn animals this may be a good time to introduce them and reinforce that Jesus wasn't born in a home or hospital.

Scripture: Luke 2:6-7
And while they were there, the time came for her to give birth. And she gave birth to her firstborn son and wrapped him in swaddling cloths and laid him in a manger, because there was no place for them in the inn.
Questions You May Ask Your Kiddos:

Who is the baby that was born? How did Mary dress her baby when he was born? Where did she lay him to sleep? Why?
