The Nativity

Over the years I have helped the children make their own Nativity scene to take home. Some years I have been more adventurous than others. As my class consists of 3 and 4 year old children, I think that this is the perfect Nativity scene for them to make completely on their own. The pictures speak for themselves ...

Nativity Pebbles
A lovely teacher at school said she had seen some Nativity pebbles and asked me if I could paint her some. I tried to find pebbles that could stand on their own and ended up painting two sets so she could choose what she preferred.

I painted the pebbles with acrylic paint and they were quick to make and the children loved playing with them and telling the Nativity story.
Have a go at making your own or even printing out little pictures and gluing them on pebbles.

This set consists of pebbles that are all upright. The photo is deceiving and shows no dimension .

  5. I love both activities - I agree, the pictures and creations do speak for themselves and how wonderful these activities are. I particularly love the concept of the wonder table and what the kids have done there :), but oh I do have a soft spot for those Nativity pictures. Thank you for sharing this at the Kids' Co-Op.
