Primary Music Idea - The Greatest Christmas Gift
I had spent hours trying to decide what would be the best way to celebrate Christmas through music the week before Christmas. I had received a phone call from my sister Stacy who had mentioned she was going to be using one of the Mormon Messages as part of her Sunday Young Women's Lesson. I loved the video so much that I too decided that this was what our Primary children needed to see that particular Sunday. At first, I asked the Primary Children what it was that they were hoping to receive that week for Christmas. The Primary Children fell for it and began listing every toy you could possibly imagine. Then, I said that I had a video to share with them about a family on Christmas morning and that I wanted them to pay very close attention to what was happening in their home that day. After the video, I asked them what they had noticed. They all noticed that the most important gift of Christmas is the birth of our Savior. I had placed several pictures of the Savior's birth and life into gift bags and packages with the name of a song that we could sing in conjunction with the picture. This activity brought the spirit into our Primary Room that day and continued to be a message that the Primary Children remembered throughout the holiday season.
