Dan Scott has prepared a series of PowerPoint slides and loaded them onto Flikr. These would be great for a talk to children, youth or adults. One of them illustrates this post, but you can see them all on his Flikr account.
You’ll get all the info on Dan’s blog, together with a suggested music play list.
Thanks Dan for your generosity in making these available.
If you are looking for a fresh way to tell the Christmas story, especially to young children, there is a great idea over at Eliab.com.

While you are over at Eliab.com, have a look round. Don has heaps of really useful ideas and resources available.
There is a lovely idea which we came across recently for a simple craft project to tie in with Poppy Day (Remembrance Day or Veterans’ Day) .
You will find it on DLTK’s Crafts for Kids, together with masses of other ideas for all sorts of craft. In addition to ideas, templates and other downloadable printables are available free of charge for all sorts of projects.

You will find just that at the new CM Blitz site, a kidmin blog directory from CMBuzz.
