Christmas on a Budget Series: Make Your Own Kid-Proof Nativity

I can’t take credit for this one. My good friend Dani had this block-set Nativity displayed in her home and I fell in love with it. Genius! I own a couple nativity sets and my boys love breaking little arms off my Mary, playing dinosaur attack with my sheep and light saber with Joseph’s cane. Let’s just say I don’t think one set is fully intact.

You could use blocks, rocks, cardboard, really anything remotely sturdy to make this set. or each character use stickers or print pictures of the web. You could even cut figures from Christmas themed coloring book pages! I would use Mod Podge to attach each paper figure to the block (or whatever you use), then apply a nice thin layer again over the top of paper and entire surface for a finished look.

*Really tight on $$? Trace or free hand the figures on the blocks, have your kids find wood scraps at a construction site (you may want to ask first), or different size rocks in your back yard or local park. You can also use Elmer’s glue in replace of Mod Podge!

Thanks for letting me steal your idea Dani!
