What's the best way to lead your preschoolers (& everyone watching) through the Christmas story?  Have them grab on to a rope that will Lead the Way to Christmas!

Mary and Joseph will lead us to the place that God provided for them in Bethlehem - a warm and cozy spot in a barn.  Your preschoolers will dress up as animals, grab on to the rope and teach us how to share all that we have (PLUS come up with a few ideas on what to name the newborn savior).  The stars and angels grab on to the rope and lead us as they sparkle and shine and sing and twirl in celebration of the birth of the savior.  And your preschool shepherds . . . they grab on to the rope and lead us in worship as they kneel at the savior's tiny feet.

Lead the Way to Christmas includes:
1) 16 original Christmas rhymes (a narrator reads the rhymes and 12 - 30 of your preschoolers act out the rhymes), prop list and staging,
2) 7 preschool Christmas songs that are packed with lots of motions, sign language, tambourines & bandana motions,
3) piano score with guitar chords,
4) a vocal CD (a recording of Cathy singing the full version of each song).
Program performance time: 20 minutes.

Accompaniment tracks (MP3s or CDs) come in handy when your piano player isn't available or when you need to free up your hands to teach motions or sign language to your preschool children.  These accompaniment tracks may also be used for your performance - it's like hiring a piano player who plays the music the same way every time!

"Your program was a big hit with our teachers and with our audience.  We loved it!  I especially appreciated that it was so developmentally appropriate and fun for the children to sing.  Actually, the songs were fun for the teachers to sing, too!"
Gail M., Cascade Christian Early Learning Center

"Your program, 'Lead the Way to Christmas', is absolutely awesome!"

Christy F., Celebration Lutheran Church

"Just wanted to let you know that your new play, 'Lead the Way to Christmas', was a big hit at our church.  The children loved their costumes and props.  They also enjoyed the music with all of the stomping, waving, chiming, clanging, and 'woos'.  Thank you!"

Mary P., Cherry Creek Community Church

"Everyone loved 'Lead the Way to Christmas' and it worked out wonderfully.  Your easy, energetic and fun music with the practice CDs make the singing a snap and the rhyming lines are easy to memorize.  We divided up the show so that it was possible for each class/age group to practice their lines and songs in their separate classrooms.  Then we had one dress rehearsal to put the whole show together.  You make my job easy!  Thank you."
Nicole V., St. Matthew's Lutheran Church

"We love your materials.  They are spirit-filled, age-appropriate and fun!"

Allison K., Trinity Lutheran School

"I come back to your products every year.  The music is simple for preschoolers to sing.  The piano score allows for 'live' instrumentation, and the keyboard CD is ideal for practicing when our accompanist is unavailable.  Thank you for the perfect preschool package.  The parents are always pleased with the results!"

Joslyn H., First United Methodist Day School

"Thank you for providing nice and educational programs for all of our little ones!  Your preschool Christmas programs are very easy for our children to sing and move to."

Bonnie G., Community Church of God
