Challenge your child to retell the story. Help him or her remember key details by asking the following questions:
- What did the angels tell Mary and Joseph? (Mary would have a baby who would be God’s Son.)
- What good news did the angel tell the shepherds? (“Your Saviour has been born.”)
Read the following thought aloud to help increase your child’s understanding:
A saviour is someone who rescues someone else. Sin creates a separation between us and God that we cannot repair. Thankfully, God loved us enough to send Jesus, our Saviour, to save us from our sin and bring us back to Him.
