The 12 Drummers Drumming represent the 12 Points of Doctrine in the Apostle’s Creed.
I believe in God, the Father Almighty,
the Creator of heaven and earth,
and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord:
Who was conceived of the Holy Spirit,
born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died, and was buried.
He descended into hell.Â
The third day He arose again from the dead.
He ascended into heaven
and sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty,
whence He shall come to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy *catholic church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and life everlasting.
Simple ways to teach your little one:Â
* Get out the pots and pans! Get out all kinds of drumsticks: toothpicks to markers to wooden spoons! Make a drum circle and enjoy the rhythm together.
*Â Explain that although the Apostle’s Creed is not in the Bible, it summarizes some of the most important truths in the Bible.Â Read it aloud.Â Listen and watch Rich Mullin’s musical version of the Creed:
*Â Print out and color some of these 12 Days of Christmas coloring pages.Â Listen to Christmas music and talk about the past 12 days together!
