Christmas Resources

I had a couple of requests for a list of Christmas resources after I posted the Thanksgiving activities, so I compiled one for you. I tried to provide some variety, as I know families like to celebrate this season in different ways. Also, I did my best to organize them into categories, but some may overlap.

“For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.”- Luke 2:11

Praise God for the gift of His Son, and have a beautiful Christmas celebrating Christ’s birth with your families.

Books:

Christmas Miracle of Jonathan Toomey

From Eden to Bethlehem

Jotham’s Journey*There are 4 in this series to choose from: Jotham’s Journey, Tabitha’s Travels (my kids favorite), Bartholomew’s Passage, and Ishtar’s Odyssey. Probably best for older elementary and up

Legend of the Candy Cane

The Jesse Tree

The Tale of the Three Trees*There’s argument about whether this is an Easter resource or a Christmas one. I would say it’s both!

A couple of disclaimers: Some of these I have personally used, however, some are suggestions that were given to me through IG or FB, and therefore, I have not gone through each book or curriculum personally. At first glance, these resources seemed to be safe theology-wise. But please use discernment, as with anything else. I did my best to stay away from Santa because in our house we don’t “do Santa” and I also tried to stay away from any second commandment violations….but both Santa and 2CV seem to creep in everywhere.
