Christmas Ideas for Young Children

I just wanted to share a holiday tradition in our family. We always make a birthday cake for Jesus. We use a chocolate bundt cake. The dark color represents our sins. Then we frost it with vanilla icing. This represents how Jesus covers our sins. We use red icing to drizzle along the top to represent the blood that makes our sins white as snow (just like the vanilla icing). We then use yellow candles to represent the light that Jesus is and how we, as Christians are suppose to be lights. My kids like making the cake and we talk about the meaning of Christmas as we bake and decorate it. This is just one of the ways that we focus on the reason for the season. More ideas to come.......
