I just posted my lesson for this month, The Birth of Jesus, on my TpT store. We are going to be making this craft for our class, so I thought I would share the directions on my blog.
First, gather the materials needed and cut out the pictures on the printable.Next, color the pictures…add glitter to the star for a little extra sparkle!
Fold the top section of the envelope in half and cut the dotted lines.
Fold in the 3 triangles toward the center of the envelope.
Glue the star onto the top of the craft.
Wrap the twine or yarn around your fingers to create a circle…please ignore my horrible fingernails.
Place baby Jesus inside the circle. Let the little ones rock him to sleep then…
…place him inside the manger. You can glue him inside the envelope or leave it as is, so it can be used to retell the story!
The great thing about this craft is that it can also be used as an ornament to help your little ones remember the Nativity story throughout the season!
You can get this craft in my new resource, The Birth of Jesus!
