Today I wanted to share a wonderful Christmas Program that you could use for your very own Ward Christmas party this year.
Last year, around this time, I was called as the 2nd counselor in Relief Society, but I was still the 2nd counselor in Primary (waiting to be released), and then I was asked to put together the program for our Ward Christmas party. I was a little stressed. But....I saw an idea and let my mind run with it. I worked with another great sister in our Ward and we came up with a wonderful Christmas program.
The Christmas program that I came up with talks about all the symbols of Christmas. It includes speakers, musical numbers, and Mormon Messages. It is a very spiritual program that everyone is sure to enjoy.
Just a warning: When we did the program it ran a little longer than I had wanted, but I had people tell me that it was the best Christmas party that they had attended. That made me feel a little better, aren’t we always our worst critics???
Since this program is a little longer, I had to come up with something to keep the children busy. I knew the speakers would be talking about the symbols of Christmas, first being the Tree, so I decided to give each family/child their very own tree (made from cardstock) to decorate. Throughout the evening the children were able to decorate their trees as we talked about each symbol.
I found all of the symbols for each child’s tree at Michael’s craft store. I just found some small stickers for each symbol. I did end up buying ribbon and tying my own bow for the bow symbol, but I’m sure you could find bow stickers.
For the tree, I used green cardstock and cut a 3-D tree, using my Silhouette. But you could simply use a flat cardstock tree as well.
I have included the entire script for this special Christmas Program. It has all the speaking parts, titles to the songs we used, and the names of each Mormon Message we used. I even included how long each part, song, & video would be.
All you have to do is print it out and find people to help. Easy right?
This is a PDF version, but if you would like a Microsoft Word version to edit or if you have any questions, just send me an email (email@example.com) and I will send it your way.
