I am the baby
asleep in the hay,
and I am the reason
for Christmas Day.~from Christmas in the Manger
I love the rhyming text of this board book, which we gave to T for Christmas when he was little. The book tells the story of the first Christmas from each participant's point of view.
T made a nativity stable scene ornament.
- white card stock
- markers or crayons
- file folder label - Isaiah 9:6
- hole punch
- four craft sticks
- hemp cord (for hanging)
- silver star sequin
Print the nativity scene at 80%. I printed the version "with words."
Cut out the picture and color it. Add a label with the Bible reference to the bottom, under the picture.
Punch a hole in the top center (for hanging). Glue the side craft sticks in place. Then, glue two craft sticks to form the roof.
Add a loop of hemp cord. Glue a star sequin to the peak of the roof, catching the cord underneath.
Let it dry thoroughly, and then hang the ornament on your Christmas tree! :)
