Christmas Poems for Children

Nativity Scene

Christmas Quiz

Which people went to  Bethlehem?
     Why did they have to go?
How do you think they travelled there
     And was the journey slow?

Where did they find a place to rest 
    And why choose such a place?
And which small child, upon that day,
     First showed his tiny face?

Who worked upon surrounding hills
     To safely guard their sheep?
What did they see to frighten them,
    Whilst they, their watch did keep?

A man, in clothes all shining white,
    Appeared up in the sky,
With massive wings upon his back
     Enabling him to fly.

Who was this messenger from God?
     What message did he bring?
And who then came to join this man
     And people heard them sing?

And then where did the shepherds go?
     What led them to the place
Where ox and ass, and little lambs
     Looked down upon his face?


Some other people travelled too
    Led by the shining star.
Who were these people and did they
      Come from very far?

They met someone along the way,
    And what things did he say?
Who said: 'Don’t travel back this route
      But come another way?'

I hope that you’ve enjoyed this quiz
    And your answers all were right,
And my wish is that you all will have
     A Christmas of delight.
