Christmas Countdown Songs Day 3- Away in a Manger

Countdown Day we will be focusing on this wonderful song.  I have great memories singing this on stage when I was little!  I had a solo and cried through most of it…but this song is really a good one.  Here are the words.

Away in a manger,
No crib for His bed
The little Lord Jesus
Laid down His sweet head

The stars in the bright sky
Looked down where He lay
The little Lord Jesus
Asleep on the hay

When we sing this song we are going to decorate my kids ceiling with glow in the dark stars.  We will put them up reminding us that the stars guided people to the new baby Jesus. Also we will be discussing how there was no room in the inn for Mary, Joseph and Jesus and how they were in the barn with the animals, what that would have been like and how crazy that our King Jesus was born in a barn.

Our family fun activity is to paint a Christmas scene on the windows.  I have window markers and paint, so we will decorate the windows with stars, trees, nativity scene, etc.
