The Living Faith activity is designed to remind your child of the Bible lesson through a drama or other engaging activity. The Extra Mile idea provides interactive ways for your child to connect with the story. Table Talk 1. What was so special about the birth of Jesus? 2. What do you think people long ago expected the Savior to be like? 3. Why do we give gifts on Christmas? 4. How can we focus more on Jesus next Christmas? Living Faith Option 1 Recruit some younger actors to stage a live play of Jesus’ birth. As the director and stage manager, your job will be to assign roles; come up with scenery, costumes, and props; help with dialogue; and run a rehearsal. When your play is in good shape, invite parents and friends to watch. Option 2 Write your own Christmas song about the birth of Jesus. Borrow the music from a song you like and change the lyrics to tell the good news! You might be able to find an online version of the music (without vocals) that you can use to perform or record yourself singing over. Later Elementary: Lesson 1 New Testament: Jesus Is Born
