Last year, I attempted to make an origami Nativity Scene. In a nutshell, it didn't go
very well. So, I decided to look for more "artistically-friendly" projects for this year.
Here's a round-up of activities that really got me inspired. Click on the links for the
This DIY Nativity Scene by Marloes de Vries is one of the easiest projects around.
All you need to do is cut, fold then glue the images. How simple is that!
If you've got spare toilet paper tubes, Catholic Icing's Nativity Set is the project for you.
Here's a cute Santa Calendar from Maestra Valentina. The kids can cut off the portion
of Santa's beard that corresponds to the date. You know it's Christmas when you've
reached Santa's nose!
This Santa Calendar from Busy Little Bugs is great for the little kids. They can put a
pompom ball or sticker on the dates leading up to Christmas.
This is one of those things on my wish list. Homemade by Jill's Advent Calendar
is one of those labor of love projects. It's all hand sewn. The tree ornaments stay
in the box and a new one is hung up each day.
Jesse / Christmas Trees
Tired and Need Sleep has a Jesse Tree 2012 printable: included are the readings,
prayers and ornaments needed for your Jesse Tree.
Here's another project for the little kids. This Felt Christmas Tree by Sol and Rachel
allows your little one to decorate and redecorate the tree.
We'll be using some of the activities here for our homeschooling this December.
But kiddies who're on "traditional school" holiday break can join in on the fun!

It's beginning to feel like Christmas in our home. We've been listening to Christmas Songs
and finalizing Christmas plans. All we need is our Christmas Tree. Yes, I'm still hopeful
that we'll get one this year.
