Someone Has a Birthday
Someone Has a Birthday is a simple preschool Christmas play designed especially for children ages 3 to 7. This program includes a narrated script and 6 preschool songs.
Someone Has a Birthday puts your preschool children in charge of planning a birthday party for Jesus. Here’s the plan:
. . .The angels will handle the invitations.
. . .The shepherds will clean and decorate the manger.
. . .The wisemen will take care of the presents.
. . .The star will lead us all to a barn in Bethlehem where Someone Has a Birthday.
Your preschoolers will enjoy preparing for the party, singing the songs and ringing the bells as they celebrate Jesus’ birthday party at the manger.
You could even serve birthday cake after the Christmas program!

We have used your preschool programs for the past two years. They have been very well received and much easier to put together than the other ones we have tried. As a former full-time church musician (I’m now the pastor), I am extremely appreciative of the age-appropriateness of the music you write for our preschoolers.
Best we’ve ever done
Someone Has a Birthday was truly a hit at our church. Every comment was so positive and everyone agreed it was the best we’ve ever done . I just loved the songs! I’m still humming them!
Made it so easy
Our Christmas musical went GREAT! The whole church was speechless! I only got rave reviews from everyone! You made it so easy for me and the children. Thanks so much!
Someone Has a Birthday was a hit! Thank you for making my job as a drama teacher so much easier. Your short, activity-filled scripts and songs are just the thing for our kids!
I can’t believe how perfect Someone Has a Birthday will be for our kids! It’s like this was written for our church. I’m an event/party planner, so this play is just perfect for me to direct – a birthday party for Jesus!
Had a blast
This was my first experience directing a children’s Christmas program at church and it was a huge hit. Someone Has a Birthday was so cute! The kids, as well as the grown-ups, had a blast!
Work very well
Our Christmas program was another successful one this year. Continue writing the 20-minute preschool programs. They work very well for us and everyone enjoys them immensely.
Enjoyed the motions
Someone Has a Birthday was wonderful! The children easily learned the music and enjoyed the motions and movement AND the parents loved it as well.
