The Fluffy Cartoon Bears Teaching Kids The True Meaning Of Christmas – God With Us

The popular cartoon series The Cheeky Pandas is releasing a bumper pack of FREE resources this Christmas, including a special Christmas episode: ‘The Best Present Ever’, to help families entertain their children during this Christmas season.  

The Cheeky Pandas, which features contributions from stars including CBeebies’ Gemma Hunt and in the past featured Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby, returns with fun, free activities and a special message for kids – that Christmas is really about a person called Jesus, who is the best present of all.  

In ‘The Best Present Ever’, Christmas preparations are falling apart for the Cheeky Pandas. Milo is sad at the lack of snow, Rory and Benji are fighting over which Christmas lights to use, and CJ’s cooking is less than perfect (pies in the kettle and turkey in the toaster!). Lulu just wants everyone to be happy – but every panda has a different idea about how Christmas should be. When the pandas get a special gift from the Pandaroo Delivery Service, will it remind them who Christmas is really about? 

As well as the Christmas episode and a Christmas song, which are both available on YouTube and The Cheeky Pandas website, families will be able to download a free activity pack containing questions, prayer points, a fun craft activity and a super-easy recipe (no ovens or mixers required). A free assembly plan will also be available for use in schools and a new Cheeky Pandas book: The Best Present Ever, has been published to accompany the Christmas episode. 

CBeebies star Gemma Hunt says, 

It’s an absolute joy to be a part of The Cheeky Pandas family.The fun, free Christmas resources that they are providing for children this year to remind them of the life-changing message of Jesus, the greatest gift this world has ever seen, is great! In the aftermath of the pandemic, as we face a cost-of-living crisis and a world that often feels in turmoil, children and families are more in need than ever of hope that can’t be taken away from them. Through this year’s Cheeky Pandas Christmas episode, song and bumper pack of crafts, recipes and activities, they have a timely reminder that Christmas is about Jesus, the light in the darkness.
