Christmas Songs Countdown Day 5 -What Child is this?
I am loving our kids learning these meaningful Christmas songs. They are really getting into it as we are singing them each night before bed as well to review. We love it! Here is our song for today.
What Child Is This?
What Child is this, who laid to rest,
On Mary’s lap is sleeping?
Whom angels greet with anthems sweet
While shepherds watch are keeping?
This, this is Christ the King
Whom shepherds guard and angels sing.
Haste, haste to bring Him laud,
The Babe, the Son of Mary.
Again, we will talk about the lyrics and how amazing that this little baby is our King! I remember as a child singing this but never really understanding what parts of it mean so we will talk about the lyrics as well. We will also play a trivia game about the Christmas story.
What are the names of Jesus’ mom and dad?
What was Joseph’s job?
Who told Mary she was pregnant?
Why were the wise men important in the story?
Another fun activity for today is we will be making our family presents… more on that to come!
