This Week In Safari :: God gave us Jesus. (Christmas 🎄)

We’re Learning… God gave us Jesus.
Bible Story: Baby Jesus Is Born ● Luke 2:1-7

Merry Christmas, Safari families! In eKidz, we’re celebrating by learning the story of the time Jesus was born. To celebrate as a family, read the Bible story and complete a coloring activity together.

As a family, read “Baby Jesus Is Born” — Luke 2:1-7 from a children’s Bible. (CLICK HERE for children’s Bible recommendations.) 

After reading the Bible story, complete the activity together:

Coloring Activity: mealtime coloring sheet

Activity Supplies: mealtime mat, crayons, clear sheet protector (optional)

  • Download the mealtime mat and print it off at home. 
  • Encourage your toddler to color it. 
  • Then ask the questions below:
    • “Who is the baby in the picture?” (Jesus)
    • “Who gave us Jesus?” (God gave us Jesus.)
  • Set the mealtime mat aside and set it aside for your toddler to use during a meal. 
    • If you choose to use a clear sheet protector, place the mealtime mat inside it.
    • Before the meal, review the questions again.
  • After the activity, say, “Great job! Who gave us Jesus?” Encourage your toddler to say, “God gave us Jesus!”

📚ADD TO YOUR LIBRARY 📚

In addition to reading stories from the Bible each Sunday, we also read a book together that reinforces what they’re learning. This month, we’re reading “This Is Christmas” by Crystal Bowman and Teri McKinley. If you’re looking for a faith-based book to add to your child’s library at home, you can learn more about this month’s book HERE!
