My Primary 6 Lesson 46 handout packet includes:

  • Christmas challenge page- Includes the scriptures to read from Enrichment Activity 2 plus acts of kindness and cheery things to do. The goal is to color in as many as possible for Christmas. For example, if you read some of the scriptures together you can color those in during class or at least the “Go to church” one.

  • Guess Who Christmas cards- Put these cards on each child’s back as they enter the room. Have them ask Yes or No questions to figure out who they are. Then have them keep their cards and explain how they think that person (or animal) would have felt on the real Christmas. Goes with Enrichment Activity 3.

Remember to pin this page so others can find these helps too!
