Where To Find Christmas Plays For Children?

In just a few weeks, we’ll be starting our Christmas Children’s choir to prepare for the annual Christmas pageant. The holiday season is a coming soon and having the kids perform is one of our church’s favorite Christmas activities.  But first, we need to find the right Christmas program for our smaller church.

Free Christmas Programs

Need more help? Use these Bible verses about Christmas to make your own play.

I started my research on Google, and soon discovered there were very few free Christmas plays for kids choirs. It looks like many churches simply mix together Christmas poems, Bible verses and Christmas songs music to create a short 30-minute Kids Christmas program. This is what we’ve done in past years, but this year we’re going for something a little larger than a Children’s Christmas skit. I’m looking for music and drama that features Christmas stories. Some biblical costumes would be fun too, and it must come with a complete play script.

Professionally Published Christmas Programs

  • God’s Kids Worship has a split track DVD of Christmas music that makes it super easy for any church to produce a kids choir event for Christmas.
  • I searched Christmas play on Amazon.com I love these because all the customer reviews available for each program for Christmas. You can also listen to some of the Christmas songs online.
  • LifeWay sells hundreds of musical programs, you can browse or search to find a Christmas pageant for children. They specialize in religious Christmas programs that would work well for a kids musical at church.

Independent Christmas Pageants For Children

  • Fools for Christ has some biblical drama scripts.
  • Cathy’s Music offers several Christmas Musicals for children. This site has over 15 plays for Christmas. You should be able to find the right program for small children’s choirs here.
  • Taylor Made Productions has Christmas plays. One major benefit of using an independently published church musical is you can contact the people who wrote the program. This website has pictures from their pageant for Christmas, and hints from the original director.
  • Guiding Light Video sells complete kits to host a kids Christmas paly
  • Pioneer Drama Services also sells a large selection of Children’s Christmas programs. This site sells a large selection of kids musicals for Christmas.

    I just want to thank you for posting up these wonderful plays. We used a Super Christmas in our church in Nuevo Laredo, Mexico, and it was truly such a blessing :-) I translated it and edited a few things but the message of the birth of our Savior was loud and clear. To God be the glory and thanks again so much for sharing!!!!

    Thank you for this small but meaningful playlet. I am from Sri Lanka and I was looking for a relevant play for the children in two orphanages to present to people who don’t really know the true meaning of Christmas. God bless you for sharing it free.

    This is a free Christmas play that is easy to rehearse and perform and totally based on Bible stories. A great way to share God’s gift of salvation in Jesus at Christmas time.
