Christmas in the Kitchen
Christmas in the Kitchen is a Christian preschool Christmas musical written for 3-7 year-old children. This program features a script that includes interactive narrated rhymes and 6 pre-K Christmas songs.
It’s Christmas in the Kitchen and that means your preschoolers are going to make cookies AND the cookies they make will help them tell the Christmas story!
. . . Mary and Joseph’s foot-shaped cookies will make their feet skip on their long trip to Bethlehem.
. . . Your preschoolers will dress up as animals in the barn and discover that God has given each of them something that they can give away to the newborn Savior to show their love. Along with milk & eggs & wool, the barn animals will deliver heart-shaped cookies to Mary and Joseph.
. . .The angels will deliver round smiley-face “joy” cookies to the shepherds when they tell them that God’s promised savior is now lying in a manger and brings joy to the whole world.
. . .The shepherds don’t have time to bake, so they buy some star-shaped cookies to celebrate the light that Jesus brings to all of our lives.
“When things got quiet, Mary opened up her cookie jar.
She treasured every cookie she took out, and here they are:
A foot, a heart, a smile, and at the bottom was a star.
These cookies tell a story to us all, both near and far.
For God had promised long ago to send a Savior here,
to bring us light when things get dark, and take away our fear;
To bring us joy, and tell us that God’s love is always near;
to walk beside us each and every day throughout the year.”
During the program, your preschoolers get to be kitchen helpers who deliver cookies to the characters in the Christmas story. Why not serve cookies after your Christmas program? Or better yet, send everyone home with a cookie & a piece of the Christmas story!

Wonderful little musicals
Thank you again for your wonderful little musicals. I think this is the 4th one we’ve used. They are always a big hit with our kids and our church family!
Sang good and strong
Just to let you know Christmas in the Kitchen was a hit! We set it up so the older kids had parts to memorize instead of so much narration, but the songs were so simple and fun that everybody learned them well and sang them out good and strong. I love being able to go to your choice of Christmas programs and know that they are going to be a perfect fit no matter what choice I make!
Just love these
Christmas in the Kitchen is the 5th program that I have ordered from you. I just love these programs. My preschool friends know the story of the birth of Jesus inside and out by the time Christmas arrives. Thank you for always delivering quality Christmas programs that are appropriate for preschool children. Each year the preschool families are so amazed by how wonderful the programs are. Thank you!
