A Bunch of Gifts for Christmas
helps preschoolers to celebrate the gifts that God sends our way at Christmas . . . and there are a BUNCH of them!  First your preschoolers will listen to the clue.  After they hear the clue, it is their job to find the 5 gift boxes that are hidden in the audience:

We need your help to find the first gift.  Here is your first clue.
The gift is wrapped in paper and the paper is bright blue.
Now look around and see if you can find a box that's blue. 
And if you find it, hold it up and yell, "Yahoo!  Yahoo!"
(Audience member holds up box & yells, "Yahoo! Yahoo!")

That's it!  The blue box has been found.  Let Mary look inside.
(Audience member gives box to Mary; Mary takes Baby Jesus out of box.)
So Mary took the gift and when she opened it she sighed.
This baby was God's gift to Mary and to all the world.
The gift was baby Jesus.  Mary held him close and twirled.

After each gift is opened, it's box will be placed in the big "bunch of gifts" pile next to the manger.  As the boxes pile up, your preschool children will celebrate, with excitement, that God's gift of a savior brings a bunch of gifts to all of us:  hope, comfort, peace, truth, light and love.  Your Pre-K kids will "jingle their bells for joy" as they worship this newborn savior and celebrate all of God's gifts to the world.
