Christmas Nativities and Traditions.

Go on over to Spell Out Loud, and see her Christmas Nativity Sets Post. I love little people, and this is too cute! She also listed tons of links of cute Nativities online.

I also wanted to add a few fun things we have and do with nativities. I wrote another post with ideas, earlier. I wanted to add a few other things.

We have two kid okay nativities, one is not available from the site I purchased it from, I bought it around 9 years ago! It was only $3-$5 and it's very small, and porcelain. I like it because they do have to handle it carefully! I also just purchased this one from oriental trading company.

My good friend Andrea, at Dean's Academy does something I love. She has purchased each of her children their own nativity, she looks for cheap ones or nativities at thrift stores. Her children, pick the perfect place for their nativity, and can set it up as they choose, they can change the positions as they want! Last year, one of her children was sure someone was messing around with his nativity, and moving the pieces, it was hilarious! She also has some cute edible nativities, they made last year.

Last year I so wanted to do this, but never got around to it. It's awesome, in my thoughts!! A bread dough nativity, that looks porcelain!

I love the idea of letting the kids feel and touch and play with the nativity. I am going to find a nativity kit we can paint this year. I have also seen some cute finger puppet nativities, such as these.

Every year we also make gingerbread houses. I usually just buy 2 kits from the store, and the girls design one and the boys design one. We also have a tradition of making ornaments for our Christmas tree each year. Last year, we only used our homemade ornaments, and a few of our purchased nativity ornaments.
