You may well be planning your children’s Christmas party round about now. Are you looking for free downloadable resources, to help you produce professionally designed invitations and flyers?
We thought you might be interested in a web site we’ve just come across.
Christian Tools of Affirmation have some products to buy, but they also generously make available for free download PDFs which you can customize. Invitations, flyers, cards, door hangers, even related service plans for schools, are on their pages.
This year’s theme is Love came down at Christmas.
Last year’s theme is also still available. It was Happy Birthday Jesus.
Damaris Trust is a wonderful organization that creates resources for evangelism. Their goal is to relate the Bible message to popular culture, including using movies to explore the theme of redemption.
This year, Damaris have once again received permission to use snippets from the British film Nativity! Using this as a starting point, they have created ideas for a primary school Christmas season assembly.
When you visit the Christmas assembly page you can click to open up the elements you wish to use and have a PDF made of those parts.
There is also a PowerPoint presentation to use and ideas for drama, singing and a time of reflection.
To view the Damaris suggestions and pick up the PowerPoint, visit the Collective worship for Christmas page.

C.H.R.I.S.T.M.A.S Simple spelling presentation the kids can “perform”.
What is the key to making a success of your life? What is the key to making a mess? By choosing random key pictures, and reading the scenario on the back, the kids are encouraged to think about the consequences of their actions.
This game goes really well with any story where the character makes a mess, or is tempted to do something wrong. For example, Joseph showing off ; David not attacking Saul in cave; Abraham getting a son his own way instead of trusting God’s promise, the disciples turning away the children, Peter cutting off the man’s ear, etc.
In schools, the practical and moral message of the scenarios is appreciated very much.
The download is a single PDF file, which contains the images, suggested scenarios and full instructions.

Now available from the web site of Damaris.org are some great new free resources, based on the new film “NATIVITY”.
They include scripts for children’s talks, video clips for discussion starters, a free school assembly outline with all the media clips and even the heading and bullet points to add to your PowerPoint presentation. You can preview everything, then download for free.
We haven’t seen the movie, but many of your friends and neighbours, with their children, may go to see it. This could be a way of connecting with them, and showing the relevance of the Christmas message for today. The Damaris material gives you ideas and materials with which to take advantage of this.
