Bake a birthday cake for baby Jesus. This is a tradition passed down in my family for years. Kids love it!! hey make it a whole birthday party!
Baby Jesus wrapped in Blankets Need crescent rolls and little smokies. Take pieces of the crescent rolls and wrap around the smokies. Bake at 350 for about 10 min. You can also use hot dogs cut in pieces.
Cut apples in half crosswise. Have the children look to see if they can see a star. Talk about the importance that the star played in the birth of Jesus.
You could also do the same activity with star fruit.
