Fifth piece of the Christmas puzzle: a giant cross
You look for the last time in the folder and discover a giant cross. Why a cross? The cross is a symbol for the reason why Jesus came on earth. You can tell this as shortly or as elaborately as you want.
But you have a problem. The cross doesn't fit into the hole. What to do? Ask one of the children to help you. They can move a couple of the puzzle pieces so that the puzzle works. You have to start with the cross. Once you put the cross into the centre of Christmas you are ready to really celebrate.
This cross helps you introduce the real meaning of the coming of Jesus
