The Greatest Gift - Jesus is the Reason for the Season
A Christian Printable Packet
Celebrate this Christmas season by keeping your child's focus on the true meaning of Christmas!
The Greatest Gift is a unit study based on the true meaning of Christmas.
Your child will be led by our good friend, Rudie. Together, they will travel back over 2000 years ago to discover the true reason of the season of Christmas.
The unit progresses from your child’s first meeting with Rudie to the completion of the adventure.
Along the journey, your child will learn many interesting things related to this special event in history.
Rudie will introduce your child to:
• Isaiah – the prophet of God who told about future events. He predicted the birth of baby Jesus.
• Many Bible verses which show how the birth of Jesus fulfilled numerous prophecies from the Old Testament.
• The meaning of many new vocabulary words.
• The location of Bethlehem on a map.
• Mary & Joseph
• Baby Jesus
Your child’s adventure with Rudie is progressive and your child will keep track of his progress with a special notebook, made with a printable cover and manila folder. Rudie is a truth seeker, and this little reindeer will not rest until he knows the true meaning of Christmas.
Along the way, Rudie will sometimes find it helpful to use Bible memory verses as well as vocabulary flash cards. These tools will be helpful on their adventure.
Sometimes Rudie and your child will want to relax and they may play a game, wordsearch, puzzle or other activity.
When they get hungry, there will be a special snack recipe that reindeer really love and Rudie believes your child will love also!
Once Rudie and your child complete the quest and they know the true meaning of Christmas, Rudie will present your child with a special certificate.
Of course, the journey doesn’t stop there!
Now that your child and Rudie know about Jesus, they begin a new mission – a mission of sharing the good news of Jesus! Rudie will help your child discover the meaning of charity and love as together they share the good news of Jesus with others through little candy canes with a printable tag.
For the grand finale, Rudie will help your child create a very special birthday cake for Jesus!
Before, the journey begins, it's important to explain to your child about this special adventure. Rudie will ask your child to sign a pledge promising that he will be a truth seeker and that when they discover the true meaning, they will share it with everyone!
