Cathy is doing her annual nativity scene challenge, which we had a lot of fun doing with lego last year. This year you can use any material to make the scene and I had hoped to enter with a nativity scene kit I bought for the kids to sew. When I opened the kit, however, I discovered that it wasn't a felt kit, as I had thought but a cardboard one that you had to slot together. The kids did put it together, but since it only took 5 minutes, I'm not sure if that counts!!
We did have the opportunity to be part of a real nativity scene the other day, though, which also may not strictly fit the requirements, but was a lot of fun! My friend Sarah had a first birthday/Christmas party for her little boy and decided to get the kids to act out the Christmas story. It was a wonderful idea, and relatively simple. She asked the mums in advance to bring a few things that might be suitable from our dress up boxes, and on the day we allocated parts and while one of the kids read the story from a kids Bible, the other kids acted it out. You can read more and see some lovely photos at Sarah's blog. See if you can spot all 4 of my kids!
