This is such a fun and busy time as we prepare for the Baby Jesus. We are having great discussions with our school-aged kids about joy. It is a challenging discussion, but the kids have been engaged and offered great thoughts! This week they get to start sharing their memory verse for prizes.
“Always be joyful because you belong to the Lord. I will say it again. Be joyful!” Philippians 4:4, NIrV”
It is also a fun time in preschool! This week the lesson is about the shepherds. There are some fun activities this week, including a shaving cream activity!
We will be using games like Bingo, in addition to the lesson, to bring the lesson home. These games can be great discussion starters. Here is a Word Search for our older kids. Have fun talking about why those words were chosen for the puzzle! Here’s a downloadable version.
I am also excited to share with you that we will be having story time on the Fairfax Circle Facebook Page. We are starting with Christmas stories. The first one will be posted on Saturday. Our first story is called Santa’s Favorite Story, and will be read by Max Inman.
