Objective: Kids take turns being the angel or being Joseph as the message is delivered that he should marry Mary!
Kids line up while one child starts out laying on a nap mat “sleeping” across the room from the line. Help the first child tip toe up to “Joseph” and tap him/her on the shoulder. Joseph pretends to wake up and the “angel” says “Do not be afraid to marry Mary”. Joseph jumps up and runs back to the line to tell the kids “I am going to marry Mary!” The angel then lays down and plays the role of Joseph. Once Joseph has announced he is marrying Mary, the next child in line can become the angel and tip toe up to Joseph. Replay the scene over and over until each child has had a chance to be both Joseph and the angel.
