My favorite Christmas craft: tongue depressor & clothes pinsNativity-1Nativity-2

Nativity-3

 

made at the church bazaar activity center where time is more forgiving than Sunday morning and the adults like to make one, too, so there's lots of help -- is a tongue depressor and clothes pin craft of the Nativity scene.

We also had a treasured dad who pre-cut the clothes pins to the proper size. I love the rustic look of this. Somehow it's more authentic as a craft. But the ONLY work to be done here is hot glue -- which I don't like using with children without lots of adult supervision.

The angel's wings and lamb's legs are the ends of clothes pins. This craft uses both flat and round clothes pins. The 3rd photo shows the inside of the base where a whole flat clothes pin is used to stabilize the whole thing. It works wonderfully well. Last thought -- this sits on a table, rather than hanging on the tree. I like spreading the ornaments around!
