Shepherd Art -- 3 Bursting In's


There are 3 "bursting in's" in the story.

  • The angels do it to the shepherds, then the shepherds to the holy family, then to others "praising God."
  • So why not make the kids the shepherds and have them do the "bursting" to tell the good news.
  • One FUN way would be to pose a group in front of a large piece of paper, trace their "bursting" pose, then sponge paint bursts of color inside their tracings.
  • Above their heads you could add captions/talk bubbles (write out on separate "talk bubble" sheets just in case someone makes a mistake on the larger sheet).

Or, just glue some snowflakes and glitter on paper plates.
