Christmas Countdown Songs Day 1-Hark the Herald Angels Sing

Here is the song for our advent focus today,

Hark the herald angels sing
“Glory to the newborn King!
Peace on earth and mercy mild
God and sinners reconciled”
Joyful, all ye nations rise
Join the triumph of the skies
With the angelic host proclaim:
“Christ is born in Bethlehem”
Hark! The herald angels sing
“Glory to the newborn King!”

We will be singing the song along with playing some instruments as we sing.  We will be talking about the angels and how they were important because they were God’s messengers.  We will also talk through some of the lyrics so our kids can understand what they are singing!

Our activity is to make an angel snack using sugar ice cream cones for the dress, oyster cracker for head, cheerio for halo, and pretzel for wings.  Attach with cream cheese and enjoy!

We will also be decorating our Christmas tree and putting an angel on top!

Love the Christmas season, how do you bring meaning to it?
