Are your children in a Nativity this year? If so then you will love this cute idea for a kid made Christmas card. Children look so adorable in their costumes one of the best things about being a parent is watching the Nativity performance and probably shedding a few tears. This is an event you will want to remember forever so makes the perfect card. It would work brilliantly if you are a teacher because you can take the children’s pictures in their costumes and use them to make a card to send home. My children are not in a Nativity this but look very cute decorated as angels with some fabric scraps.
What you need:
- A4 Black card
- lolly sticks
- brown paper
- shredded crepe paper/hay
- yellow card
- PVA glue
Use a piece of black card folded in half. Make a stable shape using the craft sticks. I was so pleased that this fits perfectly! You can cut the front of the card to fit the shape to give it a 3D feel.
Fill the shape with brown paper.
Add some sequin stars or snowflakes to the sky.
Shred some yellow and orange crepe paper to add hay to the bottom of the picture. You could use real hay if you have some.
Cut out a big star and stick to the top of the stable and add plenty of glitter.
Cut out the photo and stick to the front.
Decorate with Christmas clothes if they are not wearing a costume.
We are making these next week and I can’t wait! I hope the parents like them.
