Teaching Children Spiritual Truth Utilizing Mouse's Christmas Gift FREE DOWNLOAD

Zonderkidz helped me produce this wonderful teaching guide.
It is available FREE here and also in the column to the right on my blog. They will be offering it on their website soon. 

Here is the link to the guide:

The packet is intended for ministry to children ages Pre-K to 3rd grade. It is adaptable for Sunday School lessons, Children's Church lessons, Christian School lessons, Home School lessons, family devotions, or one-on-one time with a child. 

It includes both a lesson to tell the Christmas story from the Bible and a lesson to utilize the book Mouse's Christmas Gift. The lessons can be combined into on longer session or may be used in separate sessions. 

The lesson utilizing Mouse's Christmas Gift has three distinct pathways of application. Select the one that best fits your needs.

For older children, there are application worksheets.

The packet also includes four craft ideas. 

If you utilize centers, each application could become its own center for three rotations of approximately 10-15 minutes each. Add one of the crafts, and you have material for four separate centers.
