The Birth of Jesus Bible Study

There are so many fun activities and studies to do at this time of the year that it can be a little overwhelming to choose. So for our Christmas studies this year, I've picked easy-to-implement activities that focus on Jesus. We learn a name of Jesus each day via our advent chain, we usually read at least 1 Christian Christmas book each day, and this week we did Grapevine's Birth of Jesus Bible Study together.

There are two versions of The Birth of Jesus Bible study:

Multi Level {ages 7 and up} Birth of Jesus..
Children and teens will travel back to the first century for a fresh look at the events surrounding the birth of Jesus! The timeline of the Nativity will come alive through the Bible study of the characters and events surrounding the birth of Jesus. On this journey students will map the travels of Joseph, Mary, and Jesus.

Beginner {ages 5-7} Birth of Jesus…
Preschool and kindergarten Bible students will saddle up their donkeys and take an unforgettable journey back in time to discover the amazing events that surrounded the Nativity.

I loaded the teacher's guide onto my iPad this time so that I didn't have to print it out. I love that! Everything you need to teach this study is in the teacher's guide. It is so easy to implement. We gathered up our dry erase crayons and table top dry-erase board and started our stick-figure study.

Each child has their own set of colored pencils and their own student pages (this is separate from the teacher's manual). They draw a stick-figure in a certain color to help them remember the key components of the Bible passage.

I give my littlest ones a piece of drawing paper so they can participate with us too. This was my 3yr. old's drawing of Mary.

We enjoy doing these stick-figure studies. Even my older kids enjoy them. It's hard to find things that work well for all the ages I have at home, so I've very grateful for these joint learning opportunities. This is our second Grapevine study (You can read what I thought of The Life of Jospeh Grapevine study) and I'm deciding what our next one will be.
