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!”


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!
