The First Christmas activity pack

Celebrate the festive season with this gorgeous activity pack designed by author and illustrator Jess Racklyeft.

A light shone around them in the darkness, and they were frightened.

But then an angel appeared and said, 'Don't be afraid! I bring wonderful news.'

The angel told them that a very special baby had been born in Bethlehem. A baby who would bring peace on earth and goodwill to everyone.


Discover the story of the very first Christmas with this activity pack designed by Jess Racklyeft, based on her beautiful picture book, The First Christmas.

Here you'll find templates to make your own Christmas cards, tree decorations, Christmas crackers, bake some cookies or colour in Christmas characters. It is the perfect resource for classrooms or a rainy weekend at home.
