Care for a baby
Get your children to imagine they're living with a newborn baby Jesus in his first days by selecting one of their dolls to be "Baby Jesus." They can swaddle their doll, feed it, and care for it. This may even keep the house a little calmer -- although we're not expecting miracles! This is a great activity for bringing Jesus to life and helps younger children to care for someone else.
