A Bunch of Gifts for Christmas
A Bunch of Gifts for Christmas is a simple Pre-K Christmas music program that includes 22 rhymes & 6 preschool Christmas songs.
A Bunch of Gifts for Christmas will help preschoolers celebrate the gifts that God sends our way at Christmas . . . and there are a BUNCH of them! First your preschoolers will listen to the clue. After they hear the clue, it is their job to find the 5 gift boxes that are hidden in the audience.
We need your help to find the first gift. Here is your first clue.
The gift is wrapped in paper and the paper is bright blue.
Now look around and see if you can find a box that’s blue.
And if you find it, hold it up and yell, “Yahoo! Yahoo!”
(Audience member holds up box & yells, “Yahoo! Yahoo!”)
That’s it! The blue box has been found. Let Mary look inside.
So Mary took the gift and when she opened it she sighed.
This baby was God’s gift to Mary and to all the world.
The gift was baby Jesus. Mary held him close and twirled.
After each gift is opened, the box will be placed in the big “bunch of gifts” pile next to the manger. As the boxes pile up, your preschool children will celebrate with excitement, that God’s gift of a savior brings a bunch of gifts to all of us: hope, comfort, peace, truth, light and love. Your Pre-K kids will “jingle their bells for joy” as they worship this newborn savior and celebrate all of God’s gifts to the world.

Our Sunday School performed A Bunch of Gifts for Christmas and it was a huge hit! These are just some of the many wonderful comments that I received from church members: “This was the best Sunday School concert ever!”, “This Sunday School program was what our church really needed!” and “I loved the audience interaction in the program”. Everyone left church in a wonderful, uplifted mood. Thank you.
Tons of compliments
Our Sunday School class performed “A Bunch of Gifts for Christmas” this morning and it was a huge hit! We received tons of compliments from the audience. It was amazing how fast the kids learned the songs and motions. Keep up the great work!
Entertaining Christmas program
In the past 5 years of being the children’s choir director, I have not gotten as many positive comments as I got today! The congregation LOVED A Bunch of Gifts for Christmas. With only five musical practices and two dress rehearsals, we were able to present a meaningful and entertaining Christmas program. Thank you for doing such adaptable musical work!
Face hurt from smiling
My preschool choir did A Bunch of Gifts for Christmas and it was a hit! My pastor’s wife said her face hurt from smiling so much during the program. Thanks for sharing your talent with others for such a reasonable price.
Children love them
We are a small rural church and we have used your Christmas programs for 3 years. The children love them, the congregation enjoys them, and we all rejoice in celebrating our savior’s birth each time we use one of your programs.
Can’t tell you enough
This is my 4th Christmas musical that I’ve purchased from you and I can’t tell you enough how much our children and the congregation love your Christmas programs! Thanks for sharing your talent with us!
True meaning of Christmas
We have been doing your programs for the past 5 years and really enjoy using them because they share the true meaning of Christmas. The children’s parents always look forward to the performance!
