Birthday Party for Jesus

My Birthday, Jesus Birthday
Summary:  This book shows children how Jesus’ birth was very similar to theirs—and yet very different.  Children are drawn to the colorful illustrations as they see why Jesus birthday is so special.

This week we made a "Happy Birthday Jesus" banner to hang on our wall. It will be one of our decorations for our birthday party for Jesus on Christmas day.

Foam nativity stamps (I picked mine up at Hobby Lobby)
paper plates
banner paper

Spread one color paint on each plate. We picked certain stamps to go with each color so that I wouldn't have to wash them while we were working.

After the paint dried, I printed out the letters onto colored paper and we cut then glued them onto the banner. Right before Christmas we'll decorate the banner with streamers and balloons.  We’ll make our special birthday cake for Jesus and eat that for breakfast (yes, breakfast!) on Christmas day. You can find the recipe and other Jesus birthday party ideas here:
