Christmas: Nativity Theme

Books we read:

 Moritmer's Christmas Manger, Santa's Favorite Story, The Christmas Miracle of Jonathan Toomey, and The Best Christmas Pageant Ever are some of our very favorite Christmas books.

The girls made these nativities from popsicle sticks. Instructions can be found here.

They also did this easy craft. They gave the pieces for this out at the nativity festival we visited.
It's just an envelope with a section cut out, a star sticker, a wooden clothespin, a piece of cloth, and some straw or yarn.

The nativity festival was great. There were hundreds of different nativities from all over the world.


The kids also got to dress up and pose for pictures.
