The Shepherds Visited Jesus

According to Luke 2:8-20, on the night of Jesus’ birth there were humble shepherds watching their sheep in the fields nearby Bethlehem. A host of angels suddenly appeared to these shepherds and told them of the Messiah’s birth. Excited, they went quickly to find the baby Jesus. They were anxious to see the king they had been expecting for years and years. And yes, Jesus would be the King they had waited for, but not the kind of king people were expecting. If you're preparing a lesson on the shepherds' visit to baby Jesus, you may find the free, printable activities listed below to be helpful.
