My daughter recently asked me, "So what can we give Jesus for Christmas?" Bingo! This kit is basically a nativity scene with a twist.

Included is a book with 7 sessions that can be done whenever you like (we're doing two a week), 7 reusable presents (one to open at each session), and a manger. Six presents contain pieces to the nativity, and in the seventh box is a mirror. Hence, what can we give Jesus for Christmas? Ourselves!

This has been great for teaching my 3-year-old very visual daughter about Christmas and Jesus' birth, and my 1-year-old son really loves to play with it to. Which brings me to my only complaint: The manger is paper tacked to foam core, which is fine but will probably not last past this Christmas. It has already started to come apart in several places. The figures are tiny yet lovely (though Gabriel does look quite feminine) and should last for some time if not handled too roughly. I plan to use the book and presents next year and the year after.

As a closing note, the book mentions that this is a great way to present the plan of salvation (i.e. give yourself to Jesus), and I think so too!

Our kids want to play with this over & over & over...and it's made to do that...we don't have to say, "don't touch". This new FamilyLife product tells the Christmas story in a new, fresh, and very personal way. We think it will have a huge effect on "kids of all ages"....grown ups too !!! Way to go FamilyLife team...we love your Resurrection Eggs too!!!!

This is one of the easiest products I've seen that allowes you to interact with your children. At a time when the season is chaotic, this product returns you to the reason we have Christmas.

This a engaging version of the Christmas story. Anyone can become involved from four to ninety four. I have used it in family settings as well as Christmas Eve services for a congregation.

We had received this wonderful box set as a gift. I immediately tried to figure out how I could share this with all the kids in my child's life. My daughter goes to public school in Texas. There was recently a State ruling that God and Jesus could be mentioned in schools without any backlash. So, I called the 1st grade teacher and asked if I could read a story to the class about the Nativity, I assured her that it was age appropriate. She said yes. I printed coloring sheets from the " What God Wants for Christmas" website. On YouTube, I found a video where a Dad and daughter had put the "repeated paragraph" from the story to song.
Before I started the story, with the kids, I asked How many of them Had Not heard of Jesus. Three kids raised their hands. So I got to share, song and coloring and that "they" are God's Gift. Needless to say, it was a good day. Enjoy your "What God Wants for Christmas"!
