Homemade Gifts: Magnetic Nativity Scene
Today's activity is this super cute & simple...
About three weeks ago I came across this adorable free printable Nativity via Design Dazzle.
As soon as I saw it I knew it would be really easy and fun to make for/with the kids.
Monday night we had Family Home Evening, which included a lesson on the birth of our Savior, followed by the activity of making this cute nativity.
I headed out to the Dollar Store earlier that day to buy my $1 magnetic cookie sheet-- but when I saw this cute round pizza sheet my plans all changed and I came home with the round one, instead.
Once home I printed out the two free papers on my own photo paper. Since my board was now round I decided to do the Nativity Scene a little different and cut out the stable and stars.
Then I mod podged them down-- once that was dry I mod podged all over the whole sheet, so everything would stay put.
Next I cut all the cute people/animals out.
Once that was done I placed each person on the backside of magnet sheets.
I already had these on hand, so that was convenient.
For a little extra protection I then covered each piece with shipping tape, and carefully cut them out.
I wanted them to be sturdy and kid-proof.
Shipping tape is my quick answer to lamination.
