Today, at our lunchtime club at school, we talked about various figures from the Natvity story and words we might use to describe them.
Words that came up with the children were...
Mary: special, lovely happy, scared, brave
Shepherds: poor, happy, excited
Wise men: clever, wise, giving
We then asked the children to pick a character and use a plastic cup as a base to stick paper to and make a figure of that person. At this point, knowing the story, some of the children asked if they could do an angel instead, so we added that to the list!
Here are some pictures of what they came up with. I especially like the Mary with Jesus glued on!
