From September the retail outlets start preparing their Christmas displays rearranging aisles so that the Christmas decorations and Santa hats are in a prominent place in the store. It feels like its too early to be preparing. The reality is that retailers know we need plenty of time to prepare ourselves for Christmas. Maybe it’s time to prepare our children for Christmas too well before the annual carols event. What if we talked more often about the original Christmas events and even more than that the why of Christmas?
The kids are being prepared for Santa’s arrival by their school and the retail outlets. Are we as parents helping them prepare for remembering and celebrating the amazing message of God being with us.
This year the Baptist Children & Family Ministry team are launching Christmas at Home a resource to help families to get ready for celebrating Christmas. Here is an opportunity for some fun memory making, to read and reflect on the story of Jesus coming to be with us and some suggestions of things to talk about with children. The booklet includes loads of great activities to choose from to suit different ages, and interests. You can order them from the Children & Family ministry page on the Association website.
