Hay for Jesus  A Bed for Jesus:  Countdown to Christmas  
Shared by Nicolle:  Growing up, our coffee table housed a little manger with hay under it.  During the time between Thanksgiving and Christmas, every time we did something without being asked to do it, we placed a piece of hay in the manger.

Introduction for Story of Jesus' Birth
Materials:  Box wrapped as a present containing a Nativity Scene

(Adult holding the gift box)  Oh, my!  Look what I have found today!  Hmmm, I wonder how it got here? I wonder who put it here?  (Let child respond)  What do you think it is?  Who do you think it is for?  Well, it is December and I remember that there is a special Holiday this month.  Do you remember what holiday it is?  Can you tell me why we have Christmas?  (Answers:  Jesus’ birthday, to give presents, etc.)  God made a promise a long, long, long time ago of a very special gift.  He made the promise way back to Adam and Eve.  Do you remember when we talked about Adam and Eve?  (If the answer is no, spend just a moment reminding your child about the story of creation.)  God sent special messengers to tell people about a special gift.  What do you think we need to do with this gift?  Should be open it?  (Slowly open the box and ask questions about each piece of the manger as you bring them out one at a time)  (When all of the items are on the table)  I am so glad that God gave us the best gift of all…Jesus.  Now let’s see what our Bible say about His special gift.
