The Nativity

We’re studying Christmas Around The World during December and yesterday the kids decided they wanted to make a nativity set. We have several in our collection and I thought it would be a great keepsake, as well as some busy work for the kids since the weather is cold and wet. Flour, salt and alum (don’t mistake for cookie dough!) made a nice molding clay and the kids set to work.

Lexi: Mary has to be fatter, she just had a baby!

Nicholas: Mom, was there a pig in the stable? My sheep looks like a pig.

Lexi: The head won’t stay on the wiseman, poke your thumb in his neck.

Nicholas: No, that’s not a wiseman, it’s a camel.

Lexi: Nicholas, this isn’t Noah’s Ark – we need THREE wisemen and a Joseph.

Nicholas: How about two wiseman and a llama?

Work in progress, stay tuned…..
