Christmas is around the corner. It’s time to begin pulling out the decorations, the fun clothes, the lights, the candles, and whatever else you do for the holiday. I love Christmas…but, if you are like me, you desire to have Jesus as the focus of your home and church activities during the holidays.
There are many ways to teach children about Jesus, but I like to begin with WHY God wanted Jesus to come to earth in the first place. Once it is established that humanity NEEDS a Savior, then how God brought about salvation makes more sense.
Below you will find many different resources that you can use as you teach kids in your home or church about Jesus this holiday season. For more lessons, be sure to check out the entire list.
