Child-Made Nativity Set - The Magic Onions

Child-Made Nativity Set

Last year, my children spent so many hours making the most delightful nativity set from wood, felt and other natural materials.

I can’t tell you how much joy it brought us to bring this set out again this year.

We remembered so many sweet and funny stories from when we made it.

Kitty laughed as she admitted how angry she felt that her cow didn’t look more like a cow (it was an acorn that she painted in cow splotches) … and today, she couldn’t think why she fussed so much because ‘It looks completely like a cow!’ she exclaimed.

It has reminded us that there is SO MUCH value in handmade.
