Instead of your giving a present at this birthday party, Jesus, for His birthday is giving you the gift of salvation. Staff, volunteers and children will have fun with the "backwards" theme.
The lesson is the true Christmas story where the visuals are displayed behind gift wrapping. As the "present" is unwrapped, different aspects of the Christmas story are revealed.
(The visual is a present and as you progress, pieces of the wrapping are peeled away.)
