I thought it would be a perfect Grade 1 project and it was...
Here's what we accomplished yesterday (Mary bodies painted in one of two shades of blue, Joseph bodies painted in chocolate brown, and baby Jesus -cut paint sticks- painted in ivory):
Then it was assembly time today:
Heads and bodies and baby Jesus hot glued together (A triple arm pump thanks to my awesome Glue Gun Slinging EAs) and then tied with dollarama jute around the middle.
They chose the side they wanted Mary to be on and the way they wanted the baby to be. I love how they turned out!
