To help your young kids understand the meaning of Christmas a great idea is to set a place for Jesus at the Christmas table. Let your kids decorate this special spot for Jesus. They can decorate the chair with streamers and place a golden crown on His plate. Let them get creative. Explain to them Jesus is the king and this is His birthday so decorate this seat like a king would have at a big feast!
Explain to your kids that Jesus is not like an imaginary friend, but this is just a special way of remembering Him.
What is fun and special about this activity is that it provides a creative and interactive way for your kids to understand how Jesus is the center of the holiday. How important it is to remember that this holiday is Jesus’ day!
