- What’s one of your best Christmas memories? What did you love about that time?
- What is your all-time favorite Christmastime snack?
- What do you think the world would be like if God never sent Jesus?
- What do you think God would want for Christmas this year? Parents, this is a cool time to talk with kids about God wanting our hearts. My kids also repeatedly ask to use What God Wants for Christmas, a book with surprise gift boxes to open that tell the nativity story. You could use Micah 6:8 to guide you: He has shown you, O man, what is good and what the Lord requires of you: To do justly, to love mercy, and walk humbly with your God. Rather than just pushing “good behavior”, this is a chance to show that Jesus is the One who creates this in us!

- What one gift would be the most meaningful to you this year?
