Easy Child Navitity


Here is an easy Nativity made from simple things you may already have around the house. The set is cute and the kids can play with them when you are done making them.

Note: I am sorry about some of the pictures. My computer is giving me a fit, and I do not feel like fighting with it.

For the Manger we used: toilet paper roll, brown paint, brush, scissors, glue, Spanish moss, a small piece of material, markers, small rubber band and a small craft stick.

For Mary and Joseph: large craft stick, piece of material, 2 clipping clothes pin, glue and markers.
For the manger, paint the toilet paper roll brown. To make painting easier, hold the TP roll with a clothes pin.
Allow to dry.
Cut TP roll in half, longways.
Glue one half to the other half, back sides together.
Add Spanish moss to one half for the hay.
To make baby Jesus, cut a small craft stick in half and draw on a face.
Glue fabric around the baby to swaddle it. I used a rubber band at the end to secure it.



To make Mary and Joseph, cut large craft stick in half. Place one half in a clothes pin. Draw face on craft stick.
Wrap and glue material around craft stack and clothes pin to look like clothing.




Merry Christmas !!!!

Christmas Elves



Caity and I had so much fun doing our Indian dolls at Thanksgiving we decided to do some elves. We did 2 different elves and I just love them.







For our first elf we used a picture, scissors, glue, construction paper and cotton balls.



I plan on doing his project with my pre-school class.











Cut out the face of the picture.


Cut out the shirt and hat.


Glue on to the construction paper.













Then glue on the cotton balls.










The second elf we used a coloring page, picture, construction paper, markers and glue.


I love the elves if you get the kids to make silly faces.


Color the coloring page (google elves coloring pages, images) and cut the body and hat out. Glue on to the construction paper with the picture.





Colton's picture turned out so funny .











What jolly elves !!!!!
