Easy Nativity Craft for Kids

Nativity Craft for Kids
This is a Nativity paper craft I did with my students on Friday.  I first read the story This Is the Stable by Cynthia Cotten to them, then we got into the craft. I cut up a large folded sheet of brown paper using a guillotine (it was super fast) to make the hay bedding for Baby Jesus. I also punched out in advance the big five-point stars with a star puncher, and the circle stars with a regular hole punch. This one above was my demo one that I did in front of them as we began. They had some difficulty tying the stings at the top but for the rest of it, they did theirs quite well. What do you think?

Here's another one. My son made it for me at his school. By the time he brought it home, the angels's eyes fell off... but I love it!

I've been hanging candy canes on our Christmas tree at home. They make really cute ornaments, especially with extra designs added to them. I plan to do these with my children over the weekend. I saw these craft kits on Amazon for making a Nativity Scene, candy cane ornaments and fridge magnet posters.

About Me

My photo
As a Caribbean primary school teacher, I share my unique classroom with the world through this blog. Readers step into my class through the pictures, articles and classroom samples of games and lessons used in my class. I have been teaching since 2005 at the std. 4 primary level in Trinidad and Tobago. I am particularly interested in sharing my own personal lesson plans, tests and activities. Teachers need to share ideas and support each other because in doing so, we help to educate our students and develop ourselves as teachers. Technology is ever evolving and we as teachers should get on board with it, collaborate and keep up to date with this new age that we live in. Our students belong to this technological era and we must embrace opportunities to learn from each other in this global community. I also love to express my creativity in the classroom. I am a bit of a craftster . So I'm always cutting, gluing or making something... a game, a chart, a learning center, etc. So, teachers and parents, feel free to stop by and see what's new at Nyla's Crafty Teaching!
