Seasons of Joy

Celebrating family culture and peaceful days

From my notebook…


The Empty Manger
Give each child a smallish cardboard box (alternately, you can all work together to fill one “manger”). Decorate it if you wish. Each time a child does a good turn or a kind deed, they can add a piece of straw (even cut up yellow construction paper works!) to the manger. The goal is to make a soft, snug manger bed for Baby Jesus! After the children are asleep on Christmas Eve, add a sweet little Infant Jesus to the bed.

    You are way too creating for your own good.

Baker’s Dough
2 cups of flour
1 cup salt
3/4 cup water

Mix all the ingredients together, adding additional water if necessary. (If you want colored dough, add the coloring to the water)

Knead until the mixture forms a smooth dough.

Have fun!
