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…..
