Pin the Star on the Manger – a Christmas game

By CTA – Christ to All 

You will need one blindfold or large scarf, a large bulletin board or poster depicting the stable in Bethlehem (without the Christmas star), one paper star per child, and masking tape or painter’s tape.   

Use the same procedure as in the traditional Pin the Tail on the Donkey game, but rather than using pins, roll small strips of tape and place these on the back of each child’s star. When each child has taken a turn, remove all the stars except the one closest to the top of the stable. Together shout, “Happy Birthday, Jesus!”  

Editor’s note: CTA has a wide variety of children’s Christmas items available for use in your ministry.
