Baby Jesus

I have been bad blogger and slacking!
With the flu
and just trying to get my house clean
project time
had to take a small break!
I think we are flu free and good to go!!

SO we are playing catch up on the advent calendar!
monday we made pretzel treats...we really did make them but i took no pictures!
-well i did set out coloring books but thats it!
Today...Wednesday - we made baby Jesus in a manger
I saw this idea on pinterest
Super cute, and easy
My kinda project!

What you need:
-2 long pieces of brown paper for the manger
(the pinterest picture they used popsicle sticks)
-yellow pieces of paper for hay
-a circle piece of paper for the head
-and a white rectangle (i rounded the sides) for the body
-we also used brown paint

We painted the longer pieces of paper brown

We glued the pieces of paper to another piece of paper
(we used a light blue)

glue on the hay

and the baby Jesus

Throughout all the steps be sure to have a meaningful conversation about the reason for the season!

Our finished product!
(i quickly put this together so the kids could see what we were going to make so the manger did not get painted)

I loved this project and I loved how much they all talked about Baby Jesus having to go to a "farm" to sleep because they people wouldn't give them room in their houses.  They talked about wisemen coming and bringing gifts because Jesus was so precious! 
I love these conversations!!

Happy Wednesday!

Linking up with SHOW AND TELL #81
