The Friendly Beasts
My Church School class is performing The Friendly Beasts for their part in the youth Christmas program this year. I had my 5 youngest students use their handprints to represent the animals in The Friendly Beasts song. I printed off words to go above each animal.
I am the donkey shaggy and brown, who carried Mary to Bethlehem town.
I am the sheep with the curly horn, who gave him my wool for a blanket warm.
We used an open handprint for the dove. We should have used a closed hand with the thumb pressed out!
I am the cow all white and red, who gave him my manger for his bed.
