Christmas Drawings

For our church's Christmas program this year we are having the kids draws various scenes of the Christmas story. We will then photograph them and put them on the screen at the front of the auditorium to show while the children are singing the songs. We've done it before at other churches, and it's very fun.

The other day we had the kids draw a picture of the angels appearing to the shepherds. We had already discussed that the shepherds were very afraid. As the kids were drawing in their own inimitable ways, one child decided that the shepherds were "sore" afraid and that one of them fainted, so he drew him lying on the ground. Then he decided that the sheep were really afraid too, and so he drew several of them on the ground in an unconscious state as well.

Another little girl has drawn a turtle on nearly every picture she has drawn. She just likes it to be there.

Children are very entertaining. I think the adults will enjoy the pictures when the whole program gets put together.

I miss you and your wonderful ideas! Sounds like it will be fun for everyone, especially for the turtle.

I always loved the Christmas slide show. I actually get to see it this year, right?

Jen, the program is going to be on the 14th. So sorry.

Moms, this program was actually Gary's idea. It will be a lot of fun, and be a good reminder of the whole Christmas story.
