1) Complete a Birthday Hidden Picture activity.

2) Draw a tree on the board (Christmas in Winter!). Look up these scriptures, read them and decorate the tree.

3) Complete this maze and help Joseph and Mary find a place to stay:

4) Make a mini book:
Baby Jesus book

5) This was created as a matching game. In my twenty plus years of experience, children have a difficult time matching text on white background in matching games. I would mix them all up, face up, and have the children help you order them (words next to image they belong to).  If you want a matching game, I would print out two of them and only use the pictures in the matching game.

6) Make a mobile. I'd hang it from a pencil. You could also hang it from a hanger.

7) Read the "Jesus is Born" story, having children say aloud the words where the pictures are.
