A Week of Fun Christmas Crafts - Handprint Nativity

Handprint nativity. Poem on the back: " I used my hand to make a manger, a place for Jesus to lay. I'll use my heart so full of love, as a place for Jesus to stay.": Today, in my week of Christmas crafts, I have another simple, inexpensive and fun idea which you can use with your grandchildren - and it could also make a great parents gift . . . a Handprint Nativity!

Of course I found it on Pinterest; all you need is cardstock, tagboard, wood - whatever you want for the base, a star stencil, paint, a little straw, glue and ribbon. Cut the hearts big enough to fit the design and be sure to write this poem on the back, or around the bottom edge on the front might be nice, too; "I used my hand to make a manger, a place for Jesus to lay. I'll use my heart, so full of love, as a place for Jesus to stay."

Whatever you decide, this is a craft your grandchildren can do, and while they work on it, be sure to ask them why Jesus was born in a manger and talk with them about why He left Heaven.
