Christmas is such a great time for children’s ministries. You can teach kids who Jesus is, why He came, and what it means to follow Him. It’s important to focus on sharing the true meaning of Christmas. Yet it’s also a great time to connect with kids through Christmas jokes. You can use these with one child before a service or in a large or small group.

Often at Christmas, churches have guests. It’s also when all the CEOs show up (Christmas & Easter Only). You’ll want to engage these kids and families while they’re at your church. If the kids have a great experience, then they’ll bug mom and dad to bring them more often!

So have fun using these Christmas jokes this season to connect with kids. All it takes is one funny joke to bring down the wall a child may have put up. Then once that wall is down and kids have decided to engage with you, you can share God’s Word with them heart to heart.

First, start with a joke that gets kids to laugh and helps them connect with you. That means you’ll have a great opportunity to share the true meaning of Christmas.
