I haven't been blogging much lately because I have been too busy with my kids and having fun making things!  This is one of my favorite Christmas projects we have made so far and I wanted to share it with you!

We had a good time coloring the figures and now my son loves to play with them.  Mary is his favorite and she apparently likes to ride in his dump truck and then go to bed in the crib!

card-stock paper
crayons or markers
1.  Print these adorable free patterns from "Catholic Icing" on card-stock paper and have your little ones color them.
My little guy still can't resist eating crayons but I guess markers don't taste as good so that's what we used (thank goodness for washable markers!).
2. Cut out the shapes.
3. Roll the cut-outs into tubes and tape the back edges together (I fold the tape over the edges).
Now you can set up your nativity and play with it!  I love acting out the Christmas story with these!

  1. I love the things little ones make. If you covered the entire front (and/or back) of each character with wide packing tape before you cut it out, you would essentially be laminating it and it would last longer. You will hate to have that tear!

  2. The Nativity printables link just brings me back to your site… do you have the correct link I’d love to make this with my daughters this week after school.

  3. Looks like he had fun!What a lovely way to celebrate the true meaning of Christmas
