Sharing the Story of Christmas

My children and I make cinnamon ornaments or shaped sugar cookies
to tell the Christmas story.  

By attaching a note with the following sentences,
we have been able to share the true meaning of Christmas with others.
[Please Note: Author and source are unknown. 
If anyone knows either, then please tell me so I may give credit.]

"An angel brought the glorious news that a Savior had been born.

Shepherds followed a bright star to the manger where Jesus lay.

They brought precious gifts
much like the gifts we have under our tree.

The best gift of all that day was Jesus. 

God sent His only son that whoever accepts Him
into their heart
will have life everlasting and go to heaven.

Let the bells ring out this holiday season as we celebrate Jesus' birthday and God's greatest gift to us."

  1. Those are so pretty! A great way to share the message of Christmas. :)

  2. That is could I possibly find any energy to bake biscuits (cookies).

  3. What a simple and beautiful activity. I might try this with my kids.

  4. Dorie, what a sweet and concrete way to teach children the Christmas story! Love your creative methods.


Thank you for sharing your thoughts.
