Christmas Crafts and Activities
Each year gives us an opportunity to remember the celebration of the birth of Jesus on Christmas morning. It is not too late to make one with your children.
Have children color or craft an empty stable, populating it with figures. Remind them that Mary, Joseph, and Jesus don’t arrive until Christmas Eve and the Wise Men not until Epiphany.
