- i found the wood people at the hobby shop. they actually came with a larger "child", so i bought a bag of the smaller people separately.
- use acrylic paint to add color to the bodies of mary & joseph.
- using fabric scraps, hot glue mary's headpiece by folding over the top of her head. fold and glue fabric around the baby as a blanket
- a small piece of scrap wood can be used for the manger.
this is such a great way to teach little ones about the birth of jesus and the christmas story! or... make for just a simple mantel decor. xoxo
