Celebrating Jesus' Birthday with Little Ones + Book Giveaway!!!

Tis' the season to celebrate the best birth day story of them all--Jesus! To help you celebrate with your little ones this year, I have a giveaway and companion resource to share with two beautiful children's books by Susan Jones: A Birthday Party for Jesus and Everyone is Invited to Christmas.



A Birthday Party for Jesus by Susan Jones, tells the story of  Little Bunny who upon receiving a party invitation for Jesus' birthhday wonders what he can give him as a birthday gift? What sorts of things does Jesus want? When he gets to the party, Little Bunny learns that Jesus doesn't want new toys but rather wants our love, kindness, friendship and more--and he wants us to share those gifts with others. 


In the follow up book that just released, Everyone is Invited to Christmas, the readers are introduced to Little Raccoon who is living off by herself with few friends deep in the woods. She stumbles across an invitation to the woodland creatures' birthday for Jesus and decides to go. While making her way to the party she makes a new friend and learns about the gift of love we receive at Christmas. 


I've created a printable resource page for you to use in conjunction to the two books with 6 book related activity ideas, along with treat toppers and birthday party invitation templates.




One of the ideas mentioned on my printable list was a craft for older children to make this yule log cake candy container you see above. The exact link on how to make one for your children and free images for them to color to then decorate it can be found by clicking here.

  3. What a fun giveaway! I'd love to win these books for my kids. I grew up having a Happy Birthday cake for Jesus (made by my mom) and it's a fun memory that I'd like to continue with my own kids now. :)
