The Nativity series in our Year One Sunday school curriculum for toddlers spreads the Nativity story over four weeks, and gives the children the Nativity story a little bit at a time. You may want to use our Nativity lessons as your whole curriculum. Or if your church has a set curriculum they want you to follow, you can also use our Nativity story page, Nativity crafts and Nativity activities to supplement your other Nativity lessons. Many teachers use our Sunday school resources to supplement their regular curriculum to have an interactive bible story, extra crafts and bible pictures to color, for preschool, story pictures, bulletin board pictures, action songs, rhymes and fun activities for their preschool and toddler Sunday School classes, Children's church, Christian preschool classrooms and Christian Homeschools.

The first story in our Nativity series tells the exciting nativity story of how the angel visited Mary and then Joseph. It talks about the meaning of Immanuel (God with us) and links this to the key concepts: God loves me and wants to be near me. God promises to love me always. God wants to be my best friend. The Bible memory verse for this lesson is Jeremiah 31:3. bible verses used for reference for this lesson include John 3:16 and Luke 1-26-56. In Circle Talk Time, the discussion includes talking about Jeremiah 3:13 and how God will always love us. That it means he will never leave us, and he will never take his love away! This starts the Christmas spirit and emphasizes that this is a great reason to be happy, especially at Christmas time! For the Nativity Sunday School lesson there are Nativity bible story pictures in color and black and white, which can also be used as Nativity coloring pages. Nativity activities include a snack idea, a Nativity pretend play activity, a Nativity action rhyme (God Will Always Love Me!), and a second Nativity activity. A prayer is also included with this lesson, as with each of Sunday School Fun Zone's lessons for toddlers and preschool children. You will have access to all of the printable resources shown on this page when you join Sunday School Fun Zone!

God's Promise of Peace - Free Nativity Sunday school lessons for toddlers!
Concepts Children Learn:
God gives me the promise of peace.
God's promise of peace is for everyone.
I can sleep in peace because God is watching over me.

Prep: Mark your Bible with the Memory Verses: Psalm 4:8, Luke 2:10-11, 14. Set up your room as explained for the Pretend Play Activities on the Activities Page. Make up the sample craft angels if you would like to use them instead of the angel picture. See directions on Craft Page. Print story pages: 1 bw, 1color, 2bw, 2 color, or 3nativity color, 4 bw, 5bw, 5color, 6bw, 7bw, 8bw, 8color, 9bw, 10bw, 10 color. Make copies of any b&w story pictures that you want to use as coloring pages.

The numbers in parentheses tell you what Story Page to hold up while you are telling the story. (You don't need to read the words on the actual story pages. They are for use as posters or coloring pages). Read words in bold. The words in parentheses tell you what actions you do.

LESSON:
Memory Verse: Psalm 4:8. Other scriptures used in lesson: Luke 2: 10-11, 14. Scripture used as reference for lesson: Luke 2:6-20.

(1) Last week we heard the story of how baby Jesus was born in a stable, where the animals stayed. (2)Mary wrapped him up snugly in some cloths to keep him comfy and warm. (Take the doll and wrap it in cloths and blankets). We can use this doll to show you how Mary wrapped up baby Jesus. Who wants to help me wrap the doll? (Let some of the children put the cloths around the doll). There was no crib to put him in. (Shake head no). (3) Do you remember where Mary laid baby Jesus? (Give children a chance to answer). Right! I'm so glad you are learning! Mary laid baby Jesus in the manger. A manger is the box where the animals' food was put. A little baby would fit nicely in there. And maybe they put straw in the box to make a soft place for baby Jesus to sleep. Who wants to help me make it soft and fluffy? (Let children help you fluff up the paper shred). There. That would be o.k. to sleep on. Then Mary laid baby Jesus in the manger. Who wants to lay the doll in the box for me? (Pick a child to lay the doll in the box). Thank you, _____. And, God watched over baby Jesus as he slept in the manger.

(4) At the same time that baby Jesus was born something else happened: In a field close by, some shepherds were watching over their lambs, just like they always did. But, today something special happened. (5) The shepherds looked up in the sky, and they saw a bright light! Do you know what they saw? It was an angel! The shepherds were afraid. Let's look in our Bibles and see what the angel told the shepherds: (Read Luke 2:10-11). Wait! I hear something. (Cup your ear). I hear beautiful songs of praise to God! What could that be? (6) More angels! They were praising God for the joy and peace that Jesus would bring to the people. Here's what they said: (Read Luke 2:14). Then soon it was very quiet again. Sh-h-h-h! (whisper). I don't hear anything anymore. Where did all the angels go? (Hold hands out to sides). They went back up to heaven. (Point up). (Resume a normal voice). Now what would the shepherds do? They were so excited about what the angels told them! They had to go see Jesus for themselves. (7) So, they said to each other, "Let's hurry and go to Bethlehem." Hurry up, shepherds, hurry up! Run and see baby Jesus! So the shepherds ran off to go see baby Jesus. Let's make the sound of the shepherds running. (Pat your lap real fast).

(8) When they got there, they found Mary and Joseph; And, there was little baby Jesus! He was lying in a manger, just like the angel told them. And he was wearing cloths wrapped around him! Everything happened exactly the way the angels said! What a happy time! The shepherds were so excited they couldn't keep it all to themselves. They told all the people about baby Jesus! - the Savior who had been born on that very special day! And, they told the people what the angels said too! All the people were so surprised! And, they believed the shepherds. Then the shepherds went back to their fields to watch over their lambs. And, they sang praises to God all the way! (9) We can sing a song of praise to God too. (Sing Away in the Manger).

CIRCLE TIME: (What does this mean for me?)

Did you like that story? It is one of my very favorite stories in the whole Bible! The angel comes and tells the shepherds that baby Jesus was born! Let's read what the angels said again (Read Luke 2:14 again). That means that God was telling us that he was bringing peace to the earth. When he sent Jesus from heaven he was giving us the promise of peace! God was telling us that he is our friend. And, that he wants to forgive us. And, who was that promise for? (Read Luke 2:10 again). That means the promise of peace was for everybody! Jesus was born for everybody! He was born for ______. (Repeat the sentence for every child and adult in the room, inserting their name in the blank).

When we trust in the Lord, he promises to give us peace. We will know that God is by our side, and we know that no matter what happens, he will be with us and help us. (10) When we get lay down to go to sleep at night, we can sleep in peace. This is a good verse for us to remember: (Read Psalm 4:8) Just like God watched over baby Jesus sleeping in the manger, God is watching over you too. That is because he loves you so much. We can sleep in peace because we know God is our friend, and that he gives us the promise of peace.

Transition: Let's bow our heads, close our eyes and fold our hands. I'll say the words first and give you time to say them after me if you'd like to.

PRAYER: Dear God,

watching over me,

Thank you for

and loving me so much.
sending Jesus to us. Please help me
Thank you for remember your promise.
the promise of peace. In Jesus' name,

Thank you for

Amen.

Key Concepts Children Learn: Jesus was the special baby that God promised us a long time ago. Jesus is special because he is God's Son, the baby sent from heaven.

Other scriptures used as reference for lesson: Matthew 1:18; Matthew 2:6; Luke 1:26 - 35; Luke 2:1-7.

Crafts: The fun crafts for this lesson are: A Peek-a-Boo Nativity stable "sticker" set with doors that open to reveal the animals around baby Jesus in the manger. Use the printable sticker pages to make stickers by printing on Inkjet sticker paper. The other option for a really inexpensive Nativity craft: Print on regular paper, make copies, and use restickable glue sticks on the backs of the images The second craft is a lamb photo frame with the words, "Jesus is the one who God sent to lead us like a shepherd. The child's photo is placed in the cut-out circle on the lamb's tummy so that they understand the concept of Jesus being our shepherd.
