We’re having a Birthday Bash this year in First Look, and we want to send the party home!
The “Happy Birthday Jesus Party Bag” has become a tradition in some churches and is a fun, concrete way to help preschoolers associate Christmas with Jesus’ birthday.
It’s pretty simple really. We provide you with a cute tag and instructions for the family. You provide a gift bag, cake mix, and frosting. Some churches choose to go a little extra and add candles, but that’s up to you. Because this year’s theme is Birthday Bash, you could add a bonus few party horns and confetti to really get the party started.
If your church budget won’t allow you to buy cake mix for every one of your families, we’ve got your covered. Just send home this printable with the idea of making a birthday cake for Jesus. You could add a bow or curling ribbon to make it a little more festive.
We hope you’ll consider sending home the “Happy Birthday Jesus Party Bag” in the whatever form works best for your church. Preschoolers will love singing “Happy Birthday” to Jesus with their families.
You can find these files in your Christmas Extras folder in the December curriculum.
Merry Christmas and Happy Birthday Jesus!
