Christmas is a great time to reach families and kids who might not normally attend your church. Here are some children's ministry ideas you could use during the Christmas season.
Make a Christmas gift for someone during a Sunday service. Decorate a wooden ornament or make a Christmas card.
Cookie Decorating: Buy large cookies and have the children decorate one.
Christmas Paper Chain: During the last week of November, make an Advent paper chain, each link suggests one activity to do each day leading up to Christmas.
The Christmas Nail Ornament
Provide cookies and hot chocolate after the service. This is a great opportunity to chat with families.

Distribute a Christmas Gospel Tract to each child to remind them of the true meaning of Christmas. Download here.
Candy Canes: Hand out Candy Canes and tell the story behind them.
Photo Booth: Provide an opportunity for a family photo. Purchase a vinyl backdrop and allow families to take photos.
