Luke 1:31 -You will be with child and give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus.


Time for a little creativity. We are using Dollar $$ store tongue depressors and twine, paint and pipe cleaners out of our craft stash.   Every item that we used (minus the hot glue gun) can be picked up at a Dollar store to keep this craft inexpensive.

You will need:

  • 6 tongue depressors
    (3 whole, 3 cut in half
    and one half cut again in half)
  • Hot Glue works best – But if not available, use school glue
  • Twine, scissors, 1 gold or silver pipe cleaner, sharpie marker, and paint
  1. Assemble the Manger using 3 whole and 2 half depressors.
  2. Add Mary and Joseph
  3. Wrap twine around baby Jesus and glue together cradle and baby Jesus to the Manger.
  4. Add angel to the top and create a halo with pipe cleaners.
  5. Paint and add faces


Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me.
