Work with the music leader to prepare a sing-a-story to teach about Jesus's birth into a family (see "Music with Narratives," TNGC, 174–75). You might consider having children dress in simple costumes to represent the characters in the story, or use pictures from the GAK.
Example: Christmas is the season when we celebrate the joyful birth of Jesus Christ. Sing "The Nativity Song" (pp. 52–53). Heavenly Father promised to send His Son to be the Savior of the World (see John 3:16). Sing "He Sent His Son" (pp. 34–35). Prophets such as Samuel the Lamanite foretold the birth and mission of Jesus Christ (see Helaman 14:1–6). Sing "Samuel Tells of the Baby Jesus" (p. 36). An angel told Mary she would be the mother of Jesus (see Luke 1:26–35). Joseph was Mary's husband. Heavenly Father chose them to help take care of Jesus (see Matthew 1:20–24). Mary and Joseph journeyed to Bethlehem to be counted in a census (see Luke 2:1–5). Sing "When Joseph Went to Bethlehem" (pp. 37–38). Jesus was born in Bethlehem in a stable because there was no room for His family at the inn (see Luke 2:6–7). Sing "Away in a Manger" (pp. 42–43). Angels and shepherds shared in the joy of the birth of Jesus (see Luke 2:8–16). Sing "Picture a Christmas" (pp. 50–51).
Bear testimony of the divinity of Christ's birth.
