When you go into your child's room, say, "Merry Christmas!" It's the most wonderful time of the year because it's time to celebrate Jesus' birthday!"
As you drive or take a walk, pretend to be different animals. Take turns naming animals. Each time an animal is named, both of you will make the animal sound. Talk about how Mary and Joseph had to sleep where the animals slept in the stable. And that is where the most exciting thing happened! God's Son, Jesus, was born!
