My girls love to make cards. Angie likes to dictate the message she wants inside which leads to random but sweet cards.
As many A5 pieces of cardboard as you need
Pink and yellow paint
Small scraps of fabric/scrapbooking paper
Some black/brown wool
A black marker
I folded the cardboard in half and got Angie to make a pink thumbprint on the front cover of each card. Then we stuck a piece of felt onto the card, just below the thumbprint, to make the body of the baby.
Then I drew in eyes, a nose, and a mouth, and drew a manger.
We frayed the wool and glued a tiny bit on top of the baby’s head. Then we made fingerprint stars with the yellow paint.
I wrote Matthew 1:23 on a piece of cardboard and glued it inside the card.
While making the cards, I spoke to the girls about Jesus’ birth. We sang songs like “The Virgin Mary had a baby boy” and “Away in a Manger”.
Look! The virgin will conceive a child! She will give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel, which means ‘God is with us’. – Matthew 1:23
