Birth of Jesus File Folder Game & More

Saturday, November 24, 2012
This is a file folder game (FFG) that I play with my granddaughter. She is 3 and all I say is "Let's play a game" and it's all fun. But, with this birth of Jesus FFG, she remembers baby Jesus, His mom and earthly father's name, the stars are for the Shepherds visiting at night and the heart shape. I cut out the top of the stable for our FFG, and let her add star stickers. We can also review the animals. We can also talk about shepherds and their job taking care of the sheep.

Matthew 2:1-12  Also, there are not wise men here, since they did not visit until much later. About 1 1/2 - 2 years. They had to travel, and they stopped to see King Herod before they were able to see Jesus.

There are so many printables online, but I couldn't find this one. The second photo is what the pages print like, then cut in half and staple together to make a book. I did add the wise men's 3 gifts, but remember, they brought the gifts about 1 1/2-2 years after He was born. See at the beginning of the FFG.

  4. This is awesome! Thank you for putting this together! I have a question though. I went to print out the FFG of Jesus's birth and the last two pages, in the manger scene, the stable roof didn't print straight as shown in your picture. All the other pages printed fine and look great! Not sure if there is a glitch? I appreciate your help and thank you!
