Wooden Puzzles and the Story of Jesus' Birth

Categories: Jesus' Birth

Following Caryl Krueger's exercise of reading the nativity story, use a wooden puzzle and let the children tell the story of the Nativity. Hand each pupil a puzzle piece and allow them all to tell the story and put the pieces into place. You may want to repeat this with them, placing different characters into the story each time. Work with it until they can comfortably relate the full story of Jesus' birth. Encourage them to share this story with their relatives and friends on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.
