Let us now forget the reason for the season!
Help your preschool child to understand by making this simple Baby Jesus in a Stable Craft.
Supplies needed: 5 wide sticks, brown construction paper, yellow construction paper or craft foam, yarn (or straw if you have it), brown crayon, a marker, glue, and fabric strips.
I first had my son color four wide sticks brown (they look like tongue depresser sticks) while I cut the fifth stick in half. Next I had him glue in to place the brown sticks he colored to create a stable. Then he glued on a star on top (I cut it out) and yarn on the stable floor. I drew the face on the baby Jesus and applied glue to that stick and he wrapped around the fabric scraps and then that was glued in to place as well.
I thought this project turned out pretty nice.
