Advent 2011: Day 6

The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation.

DAY 6: The Firstborn of Every Creature (Colossians 1:15) 

Read and Discuss the verse. Why is it important to see Christ as the first-born? What are the priveleges of a first-born? 

Journal: Put a picture of your first-born on a page. Put the other children's pictures under the firstborn's. 

Language Arts: Have children write a paragraph telling what it is like to be 1st, 2nd, 3rd born, etc. 

Math: In many cultures, the 1st born received 1/2 the family wealth (land) as an inheritance and the other children split the remainder. Draw your home and land. Split it and color-code it. Who gets what? Put "map" in Christmas journal. [Caution: keep this light. There shouldn't be any hard feelings among the siblings. It should be fun and funny.] 

Music: Listen to selections for Handel's Messiah.
