DO THIS:

 MORNING TIME


When you go into your child's room this month, count down to Jesus' birthday (Christmas day) by saying, "Good morning, [child's name]! It's ___ days until Jesus' birthday!"

 DRIVE TIME


As you drive, play a game where every time you see Christmas decorations you try and be the first to name the decoration and then yell, "Happy birthday, Jesus!"

 CUDDLE TIME


Cuddle up wth your child this month and pray, "Dear God, thank You that Jesus was born so long ago. Thank You that He grew up to show us how to love others. Thank You for Christmas so we can tell Jesus happy birthday. Please help me teach [child's name] about Your great love and that Jesus, Your Son, wants to be his/her friend forever. We love You, God. In Jesus' name, amen."

 BATH TIME


Add bubble bath to your child's bath. Help him/her make lots of bubbles, and then tell your child to make a pretend birthday cake for Jesus with the bubbles. Next, sing "Happy Birthday" to Jesus together. At the end of the song, blow the pretend candles out and watch the bubbles fly!
