I collected Christmas decorations each depicting a character from the Christmas Story & placed them in a small wooden bowl. If you don't have any Nativity decorations, you could print off some characters on card, or ask children if they'd like to draw the characters themselves, just add a loop of ribbon to each image to attach to the tree. Making Friends have a cute set of Nativity figures to print out which would be perfect for this.
As she found & added the characters she was able to name them, & I was quite surprised at just how much of the story she could recall & the order in which she sequenced the key events.
Earlier today I found that she had been looking at this book by the tree. I love that she is exploring the Nativity story in her own way, & making connections herself.
