Christmas in Our Jammies
Christmas in Our Jammies is a preschool (pre-K) Christmas program that includes 6 preschool Christmas songs and a narrated script.
What’s the most comfortable way for preschoolers to tell us the Christmas story? In their pajamas! At the end of the day after children have had a snack and brushed their teeth, they look forward to a bedtime story.
The Christmas in Our Jammies bedtime story includes:
. . . . . the animals who made room-dee-doom for the baby Jesus in their barn,
. . . . . Mary’s lullaby – an itty-bitty song for her itty-bitty baby,
. . . . . jingle bells, so your children can help the shepherds celebrate the good news of God’s gift of a savior to the world,
. . . . . the promise that God is here with us – from the moment we hop out of bed until we turn out the light,
. . . . . night lights, so your preschoolers can sing about the light in their lives – JESUS!
“I’m tellin’, tellin’, tellin’ all of you good news.
So listen, listen, listen up and don’t you snooze.”

Perfect for our kids
Christmas in Our Jammies was perfect for our kids. The program gave us a creative way to tell the Christmas story. The songs were simple and easy for our 4-year-olds to learn. And the entire musical was fun for the parents to watch. Thank you for writing!
We always do a Christmas pajama day during December. The kids donate a new pair of pajamas for kids in homeless shelters and we give a Christmas book to go with each one. This year we’ll do it as part of our Christmas in Our Jammies program. Thanks for providing such wonderful music for our little ones.
Just want you to know how much we LOVED Christmas in Our Jammies!!!! We have 69 four and five-year-olds and “no costumes the night of the play” caught our eye. We had so many compliments from parents and grandparents. I think the thing that made it so successful was that the children loved singing the songs together, they had fun doing it AND we weren’t dragging them into place and telling them the lines they had to say. Everyone had an equal part and it was very age-appropriate. They loved seeing themselves in the pictures up on the screen, too. Thanks so much.
We used one of your programs last year and the children loved it. The congregation also had nothing but praise for the performance. As a retired public school music teacher for 42 years, I am always looking for age-appropriate “catchy” programs that our Sunday School can use. Your programs fill our needs.
Kids were darling
What does one say? The kids were darling in Christmas in Our Jammies! They sing, they move, they participate! Wow! Thank you so much for all of your work – your writing of the material, your planning of the performance, and all the time it must take to put the package together!
Simple and cute
We just performed Christmas in Our Jammies and it was another success! This is our 4th year using your musicals. They are simple and cute. You are SO talented. Our church family and kids always love your songs. Thank you for sharing your musicals.
I ordered a program last year for our preschool program. All the teachers and parents loved it!! So, I am back to order more for this year. Your songs are so age-appropriate – a perfect vocal range and amount of lyrics. Thanks from all of us!
I love the idea of photographs! The kids will love to see themselves on the big screen in their pajamas. So clever! Thanks for your artistic creativity.
