Lead the Way to Christmas
Lead the Way to Christmas is an easy Pre-K Christmas program that includes 16 rhymes and 7 preschool Christmas songs.
What’s the best way to lead your preschoolers (& everyone watching) through the Christmas story? Have them grab on to a rope that will Lead the Way to Christmas!
. . . Mary and Joseph will lead us to the place that God provided for them in Bethlehem – a warm and cozy spot in a barn.
. . . Your preschoolers will dress up as animals, grab on to the rope and teach us how to share all that we have (PLUS they will do their best to come up with a few ideas on what to name the newborn savior).
. . . The stars and angels grab on to the rope and lead us as they sparkle and shine and sing and twirl in celebration of the birth of the savior.
. . . And your shepherds . . . they grab on to the rope and lead us in worship as they kneel at the savior’s tiny feet.

Energetic and fun music
Everyone loved Lead the Way to Christmas and it worked out wonderfully. Your easy, energetic and fun music with the practice CDs make the singing a snap and the rhyming lines are easy to memorize. We divided up the show so that age group could to practice their lines and songs in their classrooms. Then we had one dress rehearsal to put the whole show together. You make my job easy!
Loved costumes and props
Just wanted to let you know that Lead the Way to Christmas was a big hit at our church. The children loved their costumes and props. They also enjoyed the music with all of the stomping, waving, chiming, clanging, and ‘woos’. Thank you!
Your program was a big hit with our teachers and with our audience. We loved it! I especially appreciated that it was so developmentally appropriate and fun for the children to sing. Actually, the songs were fun for the teachers to sing, too!
We love your materials. They are spirit-filled, age-appropriate and fun!
Thank you for providing nice and educational programs for all of our little ones! Your preschool Christmas programs are very easy for our children to sing and move to.
Thank you so much for sharing your musical gifts! Our children LOVED participating in Lead the Way to Christmas and the church members LOVED watching the little ones perform. It was a heart warming experience.
Lead the Way to Christmas. . . Another great musical . . . . BRAVO!
Perfect preschool package
I come back to your products every year. The music is simple for preschoolers to sing. The piano score allows for live instrumentation, and the keyboard CD is ideal for practicing when our accompanist is unavailable. Thank you for the perfect preschool package. The parents are always pleased with the results!
