In charge of the pageant? Check out this survival guide on Building Faith

An impromptu pageant script can be found here.

Most years I gather the children up front during the family service and read a picture book with the illustrations projected for the adults to see. I suggest

The Shoemakers Dream by Schell- out of print but a beautiful retelling of Tolstoy’s “Where God is, Love is”

To Whom the Angel Spoke by Terry Kay is a very inclusive story of the shepherds. The book is tiny, so enlarging it is key.

Looking for beautiful, handmade gifts that children can create? Check these out:
