My Primary 1 Lesson 46 handout packet includes:
- Nativity coloring page
- Christmas star coloring page to go with Enrichment Activity 2. Use the banner to write the child's name and challenge them to shine brightly like the star this week (sing "I Am Like a Star Shining Brightly) or write Merry Christmas. Print 2 copies out and staple the 2 stars together leaving enough room for the kids to stuff the inside with newspaper or cotton stuffing. Then add a string to hang it.
- Manger to go with Additional Activities for Younger Children #4
