I bought some nativity foam stickers from Baker Ross for our Toddler group craft. This was a last minute purchase! They are lovely but the stable is the same size as the people so I cut out a stable shape and added some hills to make more of a picture.
We made these last year and in a couple of weeks time will make them again at our Holiday Bible Club Christmas Special. The paper plate is cut to form a simple manger shape and then the plate is decorated using coloured tissue paper, a star and some shredded tissue paper. Once this is all done you fold the plate in half so it stands up! This is very simple to make and looks great.
Here’s the one I made last year….

Star tree decoration made using fimo – two colours kneaded together. Roll out and use a star biscuit cutter to make the shape. Make a hole for thread. We baked ours as per instructions on packet.
‘For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counsellor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.’
