Nativity Lapbook & Craft Pictures

by | Dec 28, 2007 | Advent and Christmas, Crafts, Lap Books | 2 comments

Right before Christmas I posted a couple links with directions for making a Nativity lap book and a cute creative Nativity craft.

We finished ours, and they turned out so lovely that I thought I would take a second and share a few pictures! We are still in the Christmas season in case any of you want to make one as well!

Here is our finished Nativity. It was so much fun to make, and was really quite simple! I only used supplies I had on hand, since I have been sick and the weather has been quite frightful, so it turned out a little different than Meredith’s. Thank you so much Meredith for sharing your idea! If any of you want to make one, go visit her awesome blog, Sweetness and Light, for the directions!

The lap books were quite basic and simple as well, and the children really enjoyed making them.

Here is Captains:

Inside View
Includes Coloring book on lower left corner, and Christmas Story on lower right corner.

Back Cover
They made a star using a circle and triangles cut from construction paper. We also added some nativity stickers I had leftover from last Christmas. (We used these on our Christ Candle as well, which we have been enjoying since Christmas!)

And here is the inside view of Rascals:

Twinkle Toes made one as well, but it looks like I missed getting a picture of it…

Well, I am off to HELP with dinner! 🙂 Hubby is making tri-tip and I am going to make hot spiced wine for our toast to St. John’s love!

Plus, a certain someone keeps asking what is for dessert on his patron Saint day!! I better get busy! But before I sign off,

“I drink you the love of St. John.”

Prayer of Mothers

Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.

A Little About Me

Hi! I'm Jessica, a Roman Catholic wife and home educating mother to our nine children. I was home educated myself, along with my eleven younger siblings. I have a special devotion to St. Therese, through whom I have been given much help and many blessings--the beautiful "Shower of Roses" that she has sent my way! Here I will record a few of the blessings I treasure. Please remember that what you see here is just a little glimpse at our lives, so please say a prayer for us, as we continue to strive for holiness.
